Expert Tips

Seasoned potato flakes add a crisp coating to this baked chicken.

This baked chicken comes out deep golden brown and crispy, just like fried chicken. Since the chicken is baked however, clean-up is quick and there's no oil spatter or lingering order.

Skinless chicken pieces work well in this recipe.

Potato salad, buttered baby peas and biscuits or cornbread make your chicken dinner complete.

Tip: Coat chicken, with zero mess! Seal chicken, seasonings and breadcrumbs inside a freezer bag and shake for perfectly covered, crispy results. More smart freezer bag tips.
