Oven-Fried Chicken with Tabasco-Garlic Marinade

The chicken is oven-fried, removing stove-top heat and mess from a steamy August kitchen while still producing an extra-crunchy crust.

Cook's Notes

Wondra is a very light, finely ground flour that prevents the crust of fried chicken from becoming thick or clumpy. Sifted all-purpose flour will work in a pinch.

    This has become one of our favorite recipes for chicken! I can't eat cornmeal, so I use bread crumbs. My shortcut is to drizzle the oil instead of brushing. Delicious!

    My family loved this recipe..It was moist, crispy and flavorful. I used regular sifted flour, substituted onion power for the onions (I don't usually do this, but I only had an hour and they were going down the drain anyway), as well as a Tabasco substitute. If you are like me you will also need a tad more of the flour mixture, so try it, it's Sooo good. Also, line your pan with foil for easy cleanup..

    The chicken cooked beautifully, but onion and tabasco flavor was very one dimensional. I can not recommed this recipe.

    I made this and it was pretty good but not as good as I hoped it would be. 3tbs is correct and it wasn't spicy at all.

    This chicken is wonderful! I made it when my parents came in town and it was a huge hit! Now, i'm making it for friends coming over tonight. I made garlic infused oil to brush on the chicken to add al ittle flavor. i bet it would be good with basil infused oil or lemon! Chicken came out perfect, crspy and juicy inside. Yummy!!

    I have not tried this yet, but note that the recipe on this website for "Perfect Fried Chicken" calls for 1/3 Cup (about 5.3 Tablespoons) of Tabasco Sauce to marinate 2 chickens. Given that the Oven-Fried Chicken marinade is for one chicken, it seems reasonable that 3 Tablespoons would be called for. Hope that helps!
