Inside-Out “Fried” Chicken
8 pieces skinless bone-in chicken, breasts, thighs, or drumsticks
1 cup canola oil
1 cup seasoned dried breadcrumbs
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
garlic powder, optional
Preheat oven to 400 F. Spray a large sheet pan with cooking spray.
Place the chicken in a bowl large enough to hold all of it. Pour the oil over the chicken and rub it into all pieces. Set aside.
Combine the breadcrumbs, cornmeal, and seasonings in a separate large bowl. Dredge the chicken through the breadcrumb mixture. Arrange the chicken on a prepared pan so the pieces don’t touch.
Bake about 40 minutes, turning once halfway through the cooking. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach 165F. Serve hot.
