How To Make Baked Breaded Chicken

  1. First, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. 
  2. Next, place the chicken pieces in a bowl and cover them with milk.  Let the milk soak into the chicken for at least twenty minutes. 
  3. In a medium bowl, stir the baking mix and seasoned salt. 
  4. Then, in another bowl, beat together three eggs. 
  5. Next, lightly spray a 9×13-inch Pyrex pan with nonstick cooking spray. Slice the butter into Tablespoon-sized pieces and put it in the bottom of the pan. Place the pan in the oven for about five minutes or until it is melted. 
  6. While the butter melts, remove the chicken from the milk and dry the pieces. 
  7. Remove the pan from the oven and dredge the chicken in the egg followed by the seasoned biscuit mix. 
  8. Then, dredge in the egg again and dip in the biscuit mix once more and press the biscuit mix onto the chicken. 
  9. Shake off the excess biscuit mix and place the chicken in the baking dish with the melted butter. 
  10. Bake the chicken for ten minutes and then flip over the chicken and bake for another ten minutes. The chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. 
  11. Finally, remove the chicken from the oven and allow it to cool for five minutes before serving.

Equipment

  • mixing bowls
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • liquid measuring cup
  • mixing spoon
  • tongs

Ingredients
 
 

  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise
  • 3 cups Milk or buttermilk
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 Tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup salted butter

Instructions

PREP OVEN:

  • Move the oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 425°F.

SOAK CHICKEN:

  • Place the chicken pieces in a bowl and pour enough milk over the top to cover, about 3 cups. Let soak for at least 20 minutes.

PREP FOR BREADING:

  • In a medium bowl, stir together the baking mix and seasoned salt.
  • In another medium bowl, beat 3 eggs.

PREP PAN:

  • Lightly spray a 9×13-inch Pyrex pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Slice the butter into 1 tablespoon-sized piece.
  • Place the butter in the prepared Pyrex dish and put it in the oven for about 5 minutes or until melted.

BREAD CHICKEN:

  • While the butter is melting, remove the chicken from the milk and pat dry on all sides.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and immediately dredge the chicken in the egg, then in the seasoned biscuit mix.
  • Dredge in the egg again and dip in the biscuit mix once more, this time pressing the biscuit mix onto the chicken and shaking off the excess.
  • Place the chicken in the baking dish with the melted butter.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Flip over the chicken using tongs. Bake for another 10 minutes until the chicken juices are no longer pink and the internal temperature reaches 165°F.

COOL AND SERVE:

  • Serve and enjoy.

Notes

  • When soaking the chicken in the milk, cover it and place it in the refrigerator if you plan to let it sit for more than 45 minutes.
  • Soaking the chicken is essential to get it tender.
  • The cooking spray and butter are added before the chicken to help the coating not stick to the pan.
  • When flipping the chicken, carefully slide the tongs or a spatula under it to lift it so that the coating doesn’t come off.
  • Ensure the chicken is dry before dipping it in the egg and biscuit mix. This ensures the coating will stick to the chicken well.
