You get a 5 rating with less than 10 minutes of work (5 minutes if you’re quick). It’s got garlic. It’s got spice. It’s got crunch. And almost no work. And lastly, it’s got loads of tasty goodness.
I needed an oven based recipe since I didn’t have the time to pay attention to the grill today. I REALLY needed the make it, bake it and eat it thing tonight. And those chicken breasts needed to go.
I used some baking powder to increase the crispness. I added some cayenne for the touch of spice I wanted but mostly it was the garlic for the wife, the garlic fiend.
This is what you need. Start by preheating oven to 425 convection.
Trim the chicken of any trim-able fat and remove the rib area and discard.
Cut the chicken into chunks. The normal size ones in half and the super humungous ones into thirds.
Prepare a baking pan with aluminum foil, a baking rack and spray with PAM.
Combine spices and then sprinkle and rub on all surfaces.
Place on rack with larger pieces in the corners. And thinner edges to center.
Bake until internal temp of 165. About 35 minutes depending on your oven and thickness of the chicken.
