A slightly healthier alternative to deep fried chicken is baked, pan-seared chicken. Searing or pan frying the chicken gives a nice flavor, while finishing off the chicken in the oven cuts back on the amount of fat used in the process. It combines a crispy, golden-brown outside and a moist inside for chicken with a delicious and mouth-watering flavor.

Step 1

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F. Heat enough oil in the frying pan to cover the chicken halfway.

Step 2

Whisk the egg in shallow dish wide enough to lay the chicken flat. Place the flour and bread crumbs in similar dishes. You will need a separate dish for each ingredient.

Step 3

Trim excess fat off chicken breast.

Step 4

Dip the chicken in the flour. Coat the piece of chicken evenly. Shake off the excess.

Step 5

Dip the chicken in the egg. Coat each piece evenly.

Step 6

Dip the chicken in the bread crumbs. Coat evenly. Shake off the excess.

Step 7

Carefully place the chicken in the pre-heated cooking oil. Allow it to brown for two to three minutes before turning.

Step 8

Turn the chicken only once. Allow the second side to brown for two to three minutes.

Step 9

Place the fried pieces of chicken in a single layer in the baking dish. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly (internal temperature of 165 degrees).
