Preheat the oven and place a piece of parchment paper on the baking sheet. Brush it with butter.
In a ziplock bag, combine the breadcrumbs, flour, salt, pepper and paprika. Add in the chicken and coat well.
Place all the chicken pieces on the baking sheet and space them out. Bake for ten minutes and flip gently to bake on the other side for another ten minutes. Drizzle oil if you find that the pan is too dry.
Check to see if the chicken pieces are cooked well. If not, bake for another four to five minutes but do not overcook.
Remove the pieces and place them on a paper towel to soak up any excess oil.
Serve hot with your favourite dip or sauce. Enjoy!
For the best crispy oven-fried chicken, ensure the following:
Use butter and not cooking spray as the butter fat helps get the pieces crispy.
Ensure that the parchment paper is not dry when flipping the chicken pieces.
We recommend drizzling oil or butter onto the parchment paper, so the chicken pieces crisp nicely.
Eating these delicious oven-fried chicken pieces right away is always better. However, if you plan to serve them later, place the pieces on a rack or a plate lined with a paper towel so the parts do not get soggy.
