Oven Fried Chicken

oven fried chicken recipeWe recently have started a new little tradition. For the last few months, we have been going out for a late Sunday brunch. Even though I am not a huge breakfast eater, I do like to eat breakfast food later in the day. We try to go someplace different every week, but we keep going back to Gram & Dun, we all love it. It is in Country Club Plaza, and not only is the food amazing, but it is a gorgeous restaurant. I love the look and feel, and the mix of elegant and casual. Another reason why I love this restaurant so much is because I have never been anywhere that does such a good job of mixing sweet and savory. There is nothing that makes my mouth happier than salty and sweet together. Many dishes on their brunch menu achieve this perfect bite. I try not to order the same thing every time, but one of us always gets the chicken and waffles. It is plate of corn flake fried chicken, cheddar and herb waffles, hot sauce, and maple syrup.

One of my favorite things to do is to try and recreate something that I love in a restaurant at home. The chicken at Gram & Dun is far more complicated than I am willing to take on at home. The chicken is brined, sous-vide, and then flash fried. Instead, I made something inspired by the dish that I love. I marinated in buttermilk to tenderize the chicken, and made sure that there was a lot of flavor in the marinade and the coating. I add a few Tablespoons of oil to the corn flakes and it helps the chicken get crispy in the oven. This chicken is so moist and tender on the inside, and crispy on crunchy on the inside. What more could you ask for? I served this with some ranch on the side and a simple salad. But when I am missing our Sunday Gram & Dun brunches after we leave Kansas, you can bet I will be making some waffles to go with this.

    Thanks Ali! We eat there a lot, and love it more every time we go there.

    Looks delicious! Would it hurt anything to marinate the chicken longer, like overnight?

    I don’t think so, but I have not done that.

    I love this recipe, and it is worth making a mess in the kitchen.

    This looks amazing, especially the homemade ranch dressing (I’ve yet to perfect a ranch dressing…going to have to try this.) When I make oven fried chicken, I use rice krispies crushed, makes a nice crispy coat without being super thick.

    Rice Krispies would be so good! Next time I will try that.

    Hi Bree, just found your blog and was going throu your wonderful space, I was searching for a healthier version of fried chicken; BTW I live in Kerala (South India) and do not have access to chive, parsley, and dill…do u have any substitute for this and is it ok to go ahead without them. Happy to be your newest subscriber. Have a great day.

    I would add more garlic, you will need some seasoning otherwise it might be a little bland.

    I can’t get over your photography! Your pictures are always stunning. And this chicken looks amazing! I also do the cooking rack on the baking sheet thing and love how it never results in soggy chicken. I’ve never tried using Cornflakes in chicken breading but it looks delicious. 🙂

    Whoa! This looks incredible! It’s incredibly hard to get my girls to eat chicken, but I’m sure they would gobble this right up!

    Baked chicken with a crunchy twist, love it! Brunch is such a great time to share with the family, the kids aren’t starving, it’s not too late in the evening and nothing is more leisurely and decadent as a lazy Sunday meal.

    Thank you for the recipe! I’m in England, so I can’t claim to know what Gram & Dun chicken is like – but I can tell you that the other half and I really enjoyed this and it’s definitely going in the ‘make frequently’ collection! For our tastes, I just added a little more heat with chilli and omitted the parsley.
