Cooking Recipe: Juicy Oven Baked Fried Chicken Fillet

You know how we tend to feel a little stuffed over the holiday season? That's because there is just so much good food served around the table. If you have been there.. you are not alone ;). I for one, love to throw parties and tend to over feed my friends.. LOL. Not that they are complaining, but I guess they just need to work out harder after the holiday season.

For this year, I decided that it's going to be different. I wanted us to eat slightly lighter yet packed on flavour. Also it was really nice that 2 of my friends [Thanks ladies..] who were free to join my brother, sister in-law and myself for dinner. Dinner was no frills but definitely tasty where I prepared a simple starter, main-course and of course we ended it with dessert. No perfect meal is complete without dessert.The inspiration? Dinner is very much inspired by a movie night meal. My guests definitely could get comfortable and eat with their hands if they liked. Do you see what I meant by 'no frills'?

In a nutshell, it's big on flavour and easy to make. Not to mention you can prepare them in advance and just pop them in the oven when it's time to eat. The Juicy Oven Baked Fried Chicken Fillet is really simple to make, and best part you don't need a hot pot of oil to fry them. See how this is suddenly much lighter? Don't frown just yet... I promise you that it is really tasty. To proof my point on big on flavour, the chicken fillet is marinated in buttermilk, smoked paprika, and some cayenne for that extra kick. Then, I added shredded mild and aged cheddar into panko bread crumbs that adds the light crunch in every bite. Then served my juicy tender oven baked fried chicken fillet with my very own light tangy dip and simple feta baby spinach salad on the side. Yummmmm..yummmmm....Till then!!



  1. After the big holiday meal, I could definitely go for something less fancy-so finding this does put a smile on my face! The mix of cheese with the panko does sound like it would be delicious along with that seasoned buttermilk batter-yum! The extra bonus is that it is so crispy but not fried. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. Hi Jo-so glad to hear you had a wonderful and joyful Christmas...as did us!
    Your chicken cutlets do look so yummy, crispy, flavorful, packed with my favorite spices!
    It sounds, and looks extremely delicious!

  3. Oh this is lovely. Huge fried chicken fan, but lighter versions done in the oven are wonderful. I like fries done that way too.

  4. yummy dish..Should try it sometime..


  5. I am the same way..I overfeed my guests too offering them most finger licking dishes:)) that are mostly eaten with fingers:)))
    This one look fantastic, love crunchy part!
    I wish you very Happy New Year, Jo...xo

  6. Oh tell me about the shameless over eating over the holidays! The last three days have almost been like celebrating pure gluttony and there still are leftovers! Burp. Sorry. Kinda feel like a stuffed turkey myself.

    Yet looking at your fillets make me feel like there still is a bit room left for those. ;)
    And they don't look like they are missing any crunch!


  7. Sounds like you had a great x-mas, we did too and we are heading for a little vacation this week that way I will come back refreshed, because I have to do it all over again. Not sure if I told you we celebrate my husbands x-mas on Jan 6 that is when we make a pig. So I figured we needed to get lots of walking in before I have to eat a huge meal again. Happy New Years.

  8. Oh, this crispy chicken sounds amazing...I love the idea of adding cheese to the bread crumbs...mmmmmm.

  9. Fantastic, Joanna! I LOVE oven fried chicken and these certainly don't disappoint! They look amazing and the flavors are terrific! GREAT to see you back!

  10. I am also an overfeeder! And I would certainly not have an issue if you fed me this delicious chicken!!

  11. Just wanted to drop you a line saying that I did make this and they were delicious! Glad the recipe made a lot, so I can just pull some from the freezer and heat up to enjoy again. Thanks!
