Me personally, I love Fried Chicken, but honestly, who doesn’t? This Crispy Chicken was baked in the oven using Baking Powder instead of actually coating them in flour then frying. Honestly I’d prefer this way to have crispy chicken any day. It’s an easy mess to clean up and you don’t have to hassle with grease everywhere and you still come out with crispy chicken. That’s definitely a win for me!
Baking Powder: The baking powder raises chicken skin’s pH levels, helping the proteins break down quicker and causes the skin to get crispy. Now it’s very important not to mistake baking powder for baking soda because it’s a big difference.
Seasoning: Now I’m a girl who loves my seasonings, I go seasoning crazy, but not too crazy. My food is never salty or have too much of anything. I say a half tablespoon of each of your favorite seasonings is fine, but if you feel you need more that’s fine too.
Coating Chicken: Now we’re not coating this like we would do flour, I would suggest getting a ziplock bag to pour your seasonings and baking powder in to shake until evenly coated. Make sure to pat your meat completely dry before adding to the bag. It’ll be easier to help get the skin crispy dry than if it were wet with seasoning and powder on them.
