To prepare breaded chicken, combine egg with spices and salt, deep in breadcrumbs and fry in two or three portions on both sides for couple of seconds, only until golden. Move to the baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake in the oven preheated to 200°C (392°F) for 15-20 minutes (chicken breast will bake shorter then chicken legs).

Serve 4 people.

  • Taste good itself with some juicy salad and baby potatoes, plain variation can be used for Japanese Chicken Katsu Curry. They are also perfect for lunchboxes or as a snack served with dipping sauces.
  • If you don’t want to discard bones with some meat still on them batter them as well, fry and bake on separate baking tray. They will take longer to be ready than the rest of the chicken.

  2. Yummie, this chicken look so tasty…love the idea of adding all the spices to the breadcrumb.

  3. MMMMMMMM,..I so much love the garlic paprika & corainder breadcumbs,,..That must make the chicken pretty fab & ooh so tasty too!

  4. The chicken looks truely delicious, the way you have described is exactly the way I fry and then bake my chicken.

    However I am still in awe of my mother and grandmother, who are able to fry chicken (fully) on the stove until cooked.

  5. What a gorgeous crust! I’m afraid all the chicken on my blog is blast from the past, since I’m cleaning out the old lunches on my camera’s memory card, but this is sure making me want to make my own!
