I pretty much love all classic foods.

Fried Chicken, Apple Pie, Iced tea to just name a few.  Last week I made up a batch of Paleo Apple Pie Cupcakes  which was my version of a healthier take on the American classic. Today I am giving you a bright remake on the classic Fried Chicken.

I served up my Gluten Free Oven Baked Fried Chicken with some simple roasted green beans, a pitcher of Lipton Cold Brew Iced Tea and those Paleo Apple Pie Cupcakes for dessert.  Made for the perfect Sunday night mealtime with the whole family.

Needless to say, the family was pretty pleased, very full and the reimagined take on the recipes made for the perfect Sunday night mealtime with the whole family.

It is these moments that matter the most to me when I have all the boys home, and we enjoy a great meal around the table. Always the perfect place to catch up, reconnect and find out how everyone is doing, without any distractions.  We all put our phones, computers, and the TV aside and enjoy each others company.  Of course, great food and drink helps us to relax, and feel good and enjoy the tradition of Sunday dinner.

I served up a big pitcher of Lipton’s Cold Brew Iced Tea to wash down our delicious dinner.  I love the Cold Brew because I can fill a pitcher up with ice, water and a few bags of Lipton Tea, and set it aside until I am ready to serve dinner. No boiling necessary!!Everyone loves ice tea in my family so it is the perfect beverage to serve during dinner.

WHY YOU WANT TO MAKE THESE GLUTEN FREE OVEN FRIED CHICKEN.

The key to great fried chicken is the crispy crunchy outside, and of course the moist chicken inside. Now imagine you can have all that in 30 minutes, without all the calories and fat.

What else you will be missing is your house smelling like the local fair.  I don’t know about you but I do not like the way my house smells after I fry something for the rest of the day, and I suspect for several days after. Even if I stick bacon under the broiler to crisp up my house smells like bacon the rest of the day.  Though I usually don’t smell it the next day, I bet you that others smell it when they stop over, and really nobody wants house guests to think about fried anything the moment they walk into your house.

But I digress…

This chicken came out fabulously, I made it on Sunday so that all the boys would be around to taste test, and they all agreed that it was pretty awesome.

They key to getting crisp and not soggy chicken is putting the chicken in that hot butter so that the crust immediately starts to crisp up.  If you feel like your crust is not crisping up, put your oven on low broil and stick your chicken under broil for only a minute or two, flip and continue on the other side.

    Any changes for using both chicken brest & dark meat? I don’t particularly like chicken breast & the rest of myfamily doesn’t care for drumsticks, thighs, etc….

  2. This was really great! I need gluten free and love that it’s healthier than deep fried chicken. Next time, I might cook it just a smidge longer for more crispy-ness, but it tasted terrific. This reminds me of a batter mix my mother used to use called Golden Dipt, except much better and healthier. Thanks for the excellent recipe!

  3. Made tnis dish with modification of no eggs and no dairy and it came out amazing. I substituted olive oil for butter and just used rice milk without eggs. It is a great recipe and comes out better than the deep fried chicken we make.
