Oven-Baked Chicken

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place the butter or oil in a 9" x 13" x 2" pan, and put it into the oven to warm/melt.

  2. In a shallow bowl, mix together the baking mix, paprika, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

  3. In a separate shallow bowl, whisk together the egg whites, hot sauce, and salt.

  4. Dip each chicken piece into the egg white mixture, then roll the pieces in the flour blend.

  5. Place the chicken, skin side down, into the hot, greased pan.

  6. Bake the chicken for 35 minutes, then turn the pieces over and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the juices run clear when the centers of the thickest pieces are pierced.

Tips from our Bakers

  • For an egg-free version, replace the egg whites with 1/2 cup buttermilk, rice milk, or water.
  • To make baked chicken wings: Start with about 2 pounds of wings, and dip and roll them in the egg white and flour blend, respectively. Place the wings into the hot greased pan and bake for 15 minutes. Turn the wings, and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until they're golden brown.
