This crispy battered chicken is actually baked, not fried -- but no one will be able to tell the difference.

Instructions Checklist

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place an ovenproof wire rack in a rimmed baking sheet. In a food processor, pulse cereal until coarse crumbs form; transfer to a wide shallow dish. Working with one piece at a time, lift chicken from buttermilk mixture, letting excess drip off, and roll in crumbs, lightly pressing to adhere until evenly coated. Arrange chicken on rack (pieces should not touch) and bake until coating is golden and chicken is cooked through, 35 to 40 minutes. Transfer chicken to a serving platter.

We loved this recipe! I soaked the chicken all day in buttermilk only, and then added the seasonings to Rice Chex crumbs. I used boneless, skinless breast halves and didn't both cutting them in half because everything was the same size. The chicken was wonderfully moist and tender as well as crispy. An instant favorite in my house.

I do not recommend overnight marinating. It was much too salty - like I had soaked it in salt water overnight! It's a lot of salt (2 Tbsp + 2 tsp) for the 1 quart of buttermilk. Will try the coating again though, works well for gluten free folks since we can get GF Rice Krispies much cheaper than GF panko bread crumbs...

Thanks for the suggestion, I will give Amazon a try. They should add that to the Martha Stewart Collection...

I assume I can do this with boneless chicken pieces as well, right? I will definitely try it!! @ ToujoursFaim4: I found my wire rack on Amazon. I actually bought a same-size rimmed cookie sheet that fit the wire rack perfectly. Definitely check Amazon!

I think I've seen those wire racks on Amazon, you might look there.

Sarah: I have not been able to find that wire rack that can be used in the oven and is stainless steel or aluminum (I don't use non-stick of any kind, just stainless steel). It looks like the one you used is stainless steel. Do you know where I can find this? I don't think it is part of the Martha Stewart collection. The only thing close I was able to find was a baking cooling rack that is not for oven use. Thank you!
