NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • Nonstick cooking spray, for spraying the rack and chicken
  • 2 1/4 cups broken bagel chips or Melba toast
  • 1 1/3 cups rice-corn crispy cereal, such as Crispix
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 4 bone-in, skinless chicken pieces, about 6 ounces each (see Cook's Note)
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Set a rack on a foil-lined baking sheet. Spray the rack generously with cooking spray.

Finely grind the bagel chips and cereal together in a food processor. Transfer the crumbs to a gallon-size plastic bag. Add the oil, salt, cayenne, paprika and ground pepper and toss to mix thoroughly. Whisk the light mayonnaise and Dijon mustard together in a medium shallow bowl.

Add the chicken to the mayonnaise mixture and turn to coat all the pieces evenly. Drop the chicken into the plastic bag, seal and shake until each piece is evenly coated. Place the coated pieces on the prepared rack. Spray the chicken pieces evenly with cooking spray.

Bake until the coating crisps and browns and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the pieces registers 160 degrees F, 35 to 40 minutes.

Transfer to a platter and serve hot or at room temperature.

We like to cook the chicken on the bone for a real moist and juicy chicken experience. If you can't find bone-in skinless chicken, simply pull off the skin before coating. Chicken breast halves can be quite large. To get a healthy 6 ounce portion, cut the breast pieces crosswise with a heavy knife into pieces about the same size as a chicken thigh.

I made this recipe for two, came out great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for dinner.  I would reduce the cayanne pepper if you don't like the kick you get and can lessen or replace it with other seasonings.  My son wants me to try cumin next time.  It's a family hit! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loved this recipe. I added a teaspoon of Garlic Salt to the bread crumbs and a handful of Townhouse crackers. Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is spectacular, save one thing -- the salt content. The recipe is apparently designed for the palettes of processed- and fast-food eaters; if you've weaned yourself off all that sodium, this makes your chicken a friggin' salt lick. Cut back on the salt by half, at least -- but otherwise, super-tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so good but needed a little perking up. Add more mustard to the marinade and some Cajun spice. I used whole wheat panko crumbs and spiced them as well. My husband thought it came ready made from the store! Skinless thighs on the bone were perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Perfect recipe, my entire family ate it up. This is the first food that I have ever been able to get everyone to enjoy! I used boneless chicken breasts and cut them in half for perfect little portions, as suggested. It made 4 chicken breasts enough food for a family of 5 with leftovers. Love that! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best baked chicken recipe. I used the pick of the chicken and marinated in lite mayo & Dijon mustard several hours ahead. The chicken was very moist and tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
YUM. My whole family loved it even my non chicken eating nine year old son. My husband said it was the best "fried chicken" he'd ever eaten. I tweaked it a bit. I seasoned the meat with Good seasonings Salad Dressing mix as well as salt pepper and smoked paprika. I blended the remains of my bread crumbs, Italian Panko and a few saltines that I processed to crumbs. I had a lot of chicken so cooked half in cast iron half on a cookie sheet. I will make this one of the dishes in rotation. So good! Shared it Pinned it loved it item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! This was the first time I made oven fried chicken. I used thin sliced skinless boneless chicken breast and this came out nice and tender. I will definitely save this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved this preparation of baked chicken breasts. As usual, did put my own spin on it. Used Crispix and roasted garlic flavored Melba toast rounds-processed spices with dry ingredients. . Used regular Hellmans and skipped mustard. Used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cooked 35 minutes. Loved it! Served with squash, onion, tomato sautee . Will make again item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family thoroughly enjoyed chicken prepared this way. I was only able to find bagel chips with sea salt so I cut the amoint of kosher salt in half. That was just enough. For the rest of the seasonings, I followed the recipe although I was concerned that the cayenne and papriika might be too spicy for the kids. No complaints, only rave reviews! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was quick and easy and most importantly.....delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best oven chicken I've ever had!!!!! I used a bit more cayenne, black pepper and salt, added some season salt as well than suggested in the coating. It was FANTASTIC. Definitely hit the nail on the head with this coating. I'll never use panko or shake and bake again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was super moist and the flavor was excellent, but I must have done something wrong. The breading fell right off and was not at all cohesive. Other than that it was fantastic! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an excellent recipe. We made it at my cooking club with parmesan garlic pita chips and chex mix. All of us loved it. I tried it a second time with yogurt rather than mayo. It was not as good. Stick with the mayo. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe was amazing!! The chicken was very tender but crispy on the outside. My family raved over it!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was great!! It was a bit spicy and some kind of special dipping sauce to make with it would be great! I sliced the chicken thinly so that it cooked within 25 minutes instead of 35 or 40. I also didn't have bone-in chicken so I just used boneless skinless chicken breasts. The best fake fried chicken I've had. I recommend this recipe 100%. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this is the best one I tried. Still the chicken is dry. Watch out for the cooking at that high temp. It goes quick.Also the yogurt gives it a different taste, not bad, but different. item not reviewed by moderator and published
AMAZING! This is honestly the best chicken recipe I've ever made. I love its simplicity and flavor. I used thinly sliced chicken breasts instead of bone-in, and garlic flavored bagel crisps instead of plain... It was fantastic! My husband told me to buy a new pair of shoes because this dinner was so fabulous! : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Look no further -- this is the BEST "fried" chicken. Everyone raves when I make it. My secret -- add all of the spices to the mayo and mix well. Coat the chicken with the spiced mayo and let it marinate for 4-5 hrs. Then, I coat with the breading right before baking. Didn't have a rack and in was still crispy baked right on a baking sheet!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Definitely a keeper. Didnt had any dijon mustard, so I used regular mustard instead and it still came out great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Seriously awesome! My 18 month old broke a bowl throwing it because the chicken was gone, yeah not even kidding. I'm sure this will be a family favorite for sometime. I do want to try some of the healthier substitutions mentioned below. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing and super easy. Have already started a ripple effect with friends and family who love it too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty and so easy. I used Italian bread crumbs in place of the bagel/melba toast chips. Worked great. I also used some boneless, skinless breasts I had in the freezer. I cut the breasts into quarters. Yummy! Will most likey make this again and again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
fantastic. crunchy outside, moist inside. I had to chg ingredients because I was missing several. I used chili powder and cumin (1/4 tsp ea instead of cayenne pepper, used 1/2 cup of french vanilla yogurt instead of mayo, 1 1/3 cups rice chex, 1 cup cheerios, 1 cup ritz crackers. This was the best chicken i've ever made. used skinless boneless breasts, cut into 1/3rds, and cooked about 30 min. item not reviewed by moderator and published

this is very tasty but very gooey n not super crispy. I even cranked the oven up but the coating was too mayo coated....thought I did ok making sure it wasnt over coated since the other complaints of it being soggy but no...tasted good though item not reviewed by moderator and published
Crowd pleaser! I used seasoned breadcrumbs and panko (50/50 mix instead. Also added some garlic salt in addition to the other ingredients, gave it a really good flavor. Will make again item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this recipe a TON of times - found it useful to not just roll the chicken in the crumbs, but get the chicken coated well with the mayo and then really press the crumbs onto the chicken with your fingers. I too use half panko for the crumbs. Once I place the chicken on the rack, I spray them down generously with some canola cooking spray. Have the oven ready and up to temp before breading!! DONT LET THEM SIT too long in the crumbs before the oven because then the crumbs get soggy. The flavor is very yummy - the paprika really shines in it. Great chicken to use for dipping (we like Frank's Red Hot Sauce! item not reviewed by moderator and published

It was a hit with my family esp.my husband..its a keeper... item not reviewed by moderator and published
While this was cooking it smelled absolutly fantastic!!! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cut them up into nugget like pieces. My only issue was that it was way salty! I should have thought of it first to see if my bagel chips were already salted. Salt is an easy fix for next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was an excellent meal! I used Spicy Brown mustard for an extra kick. I also added a little extra crumbs and subs. sweet paprika for smoked paprika. I dont have a food processor,so i put the crumbs in a bag and broke them down that way. I then used a rolling pin to make more fine. It worked fine! I was able to make 8 skinless, bone-in, chicken thighs. MMm Mmm! They were, 'WICKED GOOD!" item not reviewed by moderator and published
This chicken was absolutely delicious!! Of course, because its oven fried its not your traditional "fried chicken" but from a California mind set - this recipe is much healthier and 10x more delicious than KFC or something like that. The seasoning was a bit tangy (which is fabulous) and the chicken was super moist - the entire family loved it!! Will definitely be making again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
GREAT FLAVOR! This is a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best recipe for a quick and delicious "fried" chicken. We don't eat fried foods in my family, but we love the crunch and this is the perfect chicken recipe for us. It's so easy! Every time I make it it's delicious, moist and a huge success. For the December holidays I always do a buffet and it's a rule that I must include this. Slice the chicken breasts diaganolly and present it on lettuce leaves on a platter. It's beautiul and your guests will be thrilled. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was excellent chicken. Cooking it on the rack kept the bottom from getting mushy and the crumb coating was very different, and so crunchy and flavorful! The only change I made was I added a splash of buttermilk to the mayo-dijon mixture since it was a little thick for my liking, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. It didn't taste like fried chicken, but I didn't care; it was so good! Would definitely recommend this recipe and will definitely make it again. To lang1221: any non-coated metal rack should work. If your cooling racks are stainless steel, they should be okay. My oven racks can come apart so I used that to cook my chicken since my cooling racks are not oven safe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Question... What kind of rack should I use for this? I cant seem to find any other rack than a cooling rack... is using a cooling rack safe? if not, can anyone recommend one as I have been trying to make this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This chicken had great texture and was very moist from the mayonnaise and mustard. However, the coating for the chicken had very little flavor. Next time, would double the paprika and cayenne pepper, perhaps add some thyme and oregano. Used smart beat mayonnaise "dressing" rather than the real stuff and it tasted great. Satisfying, but wouldnt mistake this recipe for the real fried stuff. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I enjoyed this recipe, but I can't seem to find any recipe that replaces, the good old fashion fried chiecken!!!!!!!!!! I am sure if you follow the reciipe. You will be very satisfied. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This chicken is really good, that said, I have a few suggestions/complaints. I used whole wheat melba toasts and Rice Chex, both of which worked out just fine. I also used whole fat mayo, which made the chicken very moist. However, when cutting the chicken breasts, I did end up with a few bone fragments which were very irritating to clean off the chicken. Best eaten with a knife and fork in case this happens! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would only recommend, careful with the salt .. I measured mine, but I think maybe the bagel chips I used had enough seasoning in them, because my chicken came out a tiny bit salty. Also, I used the bag as recommended--what an unnecessary mess ... I will use a bowl next time. =) Extremely moist, very flavorful, absolutely perfect. Thank you Food Network chefs!!! =) item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was a hit in our home. We changed the recipe a bit-didn't have bagel chips or melba toast so I substituted corn flakes and oatmeal. Also, our herb garden is in full force so I added some parsley, chives, basil, oregano, and thyme to the mix. Yummy! Thanks so much for the great recipe... item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a wonderful recipe! As soon as my husband finishes his share... he is requesting that I make it again. I use a silicone brush to apply the mayo/dijon mustard mix to the chicken as it keeps my hands clean and insures an even layer. item not reviewed by moderator and published

THIS IS THE BEST OVEN FRIED CHICKEN I'VE EVER MADE, AND I HAVE TRIED A FEW. I WILL MAKE THIS MANY MORE TIMES! THANK YOU FOOD NETWORK KITCHEN. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family lovvvvessss this recipe. It was so good and easy. They said it was better then Kentucky Fried. This is a keeper. The only thing I suggest is while you have the food processor out, grind up enough cereal and crackers so you have enough for two batches. Then put half the crumbs in a zip lock bag for a night to use another night. This makes it a quick and easy meal to make any night of the week without a hassle. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this was truly the most delicious "fried" chicken i have ever had! It was extremely moist from the mustard and had loads of flavor and crunch. I enjoyed these chicken bites with zucchin "fries" and it was a match made in heaven. I actually PREFER this chicken over fried! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried this recipe last week and it was the best "fried" chicken we've ever had. I used twice the amount of paprika and cayenne pepper and since I didn't have Dijon mustard I substitued horseradish mustard. It added a little "kick" but since we love spicy food it was great. Even my 4 year old granddaughter liked it. I will certainly make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this dish many times now because it's so delicious. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and it was very yummy, but the following times I added more cayenne and even added about 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes. That change gives it more of a kick since I love spicy foods! This is definitely worth your time! Also, I don't think shake n bake holds a candle to it like others are saying! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is so simple yet the flavor is AMAZING!! I've made it 3 times now and my family asks for it more and more. I always have to put aside a little of the breading mixture before adding the Cayenne as my 6 yr old doesn't really like spicy food (yet!). Plus I add a little more Cayenne to the rest of the mix to give it a little more kick for everyone else. I've never used it on anything but boneless skinless chicken and it still comes out nice and moist. I've used the Melba Toast and Crispex mixture and the bagel chips and Crispex mixture and they were great. One time I used Ritz Crackers and Crispex, and while the chicken didn't come out quite as crispy that time, the flavor was still great. I just wanted to say thanks to Food Network for all your awesome recipes and amazing chefs. Since I've started watching and experimenting in the kitchen, my family and myself have not only lost weight without really trying but our meals are much more exciting and pleasant! item not reviewed by moderator and published
What an incredible recipe! Love Love Love it. It's easy and delicious. Very crispy and lots of flavor. Our kind of chicken. This is one we will absolutely use again and again. Thank you Food Network Kitchens.........Keep them coming!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is delicious. Excellent, healthier substitute for fried chicken, but just as good; I would choose this over fried chicken most of the time. Will be making this a summer (and picnic) staple. Also a mustard based potato salad makes a perfect complimentary side (this does not mean that the chicken has any sort of mustard taste). item not reviewed by moderator and published
*********** I thought the ingredients sounded a little funky and thought it wouldn't come out all that great but it was amazingly delicious! I used a whole small box of multigrain melba toast and Crispex and it really came out a lot like KFC. I don't have a food processor yet so I just used a traditional potato masher to crush the crumbs up really good. Im not a fan of Dijon but you can't tast it at all once it's cooked. For the chicken I used the frozen skinless breast tenders since they were a great size. I dusted them with garlic salt before I continued on with the recipe... We sprinkled a little Frank's Red Hot Sauce over half of them so we could have some "buffalo" style. HUGE hit with my husband! Definately worth trying and it's definately a keeper in my recipe book for healthy grub!!!!!! MMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =D item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was browsing through some recipes in the "Healthy Eating" section and stumbled across this one. I was having a dinner party for a few girlfriends and decided to let them vote on what I would make for dinner. They chose this chicken dish and it was fabulous! I used cornflakes and melba toast as the mixture and then I added some onion and garlic powder and Italian seasoning to the mix. It was a great touch! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I just made this chicken and it's great! The only change I made was using store bought bread crumbs instead of melba toast or bagels. Slightly similar but much better than shake-n-bake. After everyone is done eating, I'm gonna go lick the pan! Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really had my doubts about this reciped but decided to try it anyway since we are trying to stay away from fried foods. I followed the recipe exactly. The chicken was so flavorful and moist. I was very impressed. The only thing I would change would be to reduce the cayenne pepper. The chicken was too spicy for my kids. I will definately make this again and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best recipe for oven baked chicken I have ever tried. My wife and I flipped over the wonderful flavor and moist texture. The mix of mayonnaise and dijon mustard really is "over the top" excellent. Give this a try, even the kids will love this one. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have tried a million different recipes for oven fried chicken, BUT this one is really a keeper. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into fairly thick strips......other than that followed recipe exactly! A hit with the whole family! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree with the reviewer below that this recipe doesn't taste any better than shake and bake with added cayenne. However, we like shake and bake in my family. So for convenience sake I would definitely use the shake and bake over going through the (small) trouble of making the crumb mixture in this recipe. The mayo-mustard mix is an excellent idea and one I've used before. In lieu of brining, it makes the chicken very moist. One could easily use it with shake and bake. There is one other recipe for chicken I really like and that is put out by Albers corn meal. It is a recipe for oven baked "fried" chicken. But back to this recipe. One other thing I want to mention is that putting the chicken pieces on a rack above foiled baking sheets (like the recipe calls for) is key to getting crispy chicken. I've always put the chicken pieces directly on the foil and came out with greasy chicken on the underside. I didn't enjoy cleaning the racks afterwards but crispy chicken is worth the extra clean up. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I prepared two recipes from the Food Network library; One Pan Sage, Onion, Chicken & Sausage...and OVEN FRIED CHICKEN.

This was surprisingly easy and very good. I added some extra seasoning, a little more of the Cayanne and some seasoned salt for the guys, and the for my 3 yr old and myself, I made a batch that were dipped in butter (I know, I know...) and then just used the bagel/cereal mix with some of the basic spices.

I followed the recipe exactly, but used boneless, skinless thighs. The best "fried" chicken I've ever tasted - and I'm picky! A real crowd pleaser. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a great recipe. I used everything bagel chips and melba toast, and seasoned the mustard/mayo mix but otherwise left the recipe the same. The chicken was very moist and flavorful, and the coating was crispy. Certainly not a replacement for true fried chicken, but a great meal! Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Having started a low-fat, low cholestoral diet my family has not had the opportunity to eat much "fried" chicken. I've tried the corn flake oven fried...I've tried them all and most flopped. BUT, this recipe was absolutley GREAT. My family loved it. The chicken was moist, crunchy, and just delicious. If you're looking to eat healthy and not sacrifice flavor, make this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was SO GOOD! I used boneless thighs, and they came out moist and tasty, with just a little heat.

This is hubby's favorite way to have "fried chicken." I have used boneless/skinless thighs and chicken strips. I don't use the salt for a more heart-healthy entree -- we don't miss it! I've also used anything I have that's crunchy and dry for the coating like crackers -- I keep forgetting the bagel crips. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a quick and easy recipe to make, but it certainly didn't lack any flavor! It was comfort food to the max, but you weren't left with that greasy stomach feeling. Light and delicious! I can't wait to make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was pretty good, although it is a bit too spicy for my liking. I thought that the amount of cayenne seemed large, so I only put in 1/8 tsp black pepper, and it was still very spicy. Everything else was great. I substituted the mayo for plain yogurt. My 12 year old son loved it. I believe his words were, "This is hella good!" The left overs weren't crunchy, but still good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The skin on the chicken is incredibly crispy and flavorful. Really, you won't miss the higher fat version. It also reheats well. I made this dish earlier in the week, and I've been eating it for lunch for 3 days now, and I'm not sick of it!! :) It really is good! Thanks, Food Network Group!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so easy. I used garlic bagel chips w/ rice crispies. Threw spices and evoo in food processor together. I would use more cayenne next time. I used a lot more dijon than called for and just used my hands to smear on bone in but skinless thighs and legs. Served with whipped cauliflower and a cold corn salad. Definately one of my husband's newest favorites!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading all the reviews for this chicken, I just had to try it for dinner last night. After being married for near 29 years, my husband declared this the best chicken I ever served him! My 15 year old son nodded in agreement, then helped himself to a second large piece. I too found that both the mayo/mustard & the bredding mix was enough for 7 - 8 pieces of chicken. I used the garlic melba toast with the Crispex cereal...fabulous. Definately not too spicy for Texans! I may try it next time with smoked paprika in lieu of the sweet paprika just to change it up. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is the best "heart healthy" oven baked chicken recipe yet! My kids loved it - even though it was a little spicy. My husband - who usually puts hot sauce on everything refrained this one time.

For a healthy alternative to fried chicken, this was excellent and had a nice crust and was very moist. However, for our taste (with kids) the amount of red pepper was a bit much and next time we will cut the red pepper and the salt by half. This is a keeper. We all loved it ages 6, 10, 13, and 2 thirty+ somethings. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Our family really enjoyed the chicken, but it was too salty! I will cut the salt in half next time. The other flavors and the crispy texture made this recipe a keeper :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this with garlic flavored melba toasts. This made the chicken very moist and tender. The next time, I will try to make this into strips, as my family prefers to eat boneless chicken. Living at altitude, the bone-in chicken took a very long time to cook, even with the convection oven. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This chicken was delicious, easy and no one will have a clue its a healthy alternative! I used Special K and Melba toast for the mix and garlic powder instead of paprika it was great! I also took the recommendations of some other reviewers and cut the cayenne in half, and they still had just the right amount of kick! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love fried chicken, but hate the greasiness of it. This is the best alternative! My bf loved it and asked me to make it again tonight! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have to admit I was skeptical. Neither my husband or me likes mayo or mustard much. Chicken turned out very juicy and DELICIOUS. My 1- and 5-year old sons loved it! Breading crisps were outstanding. Will double breading recipe next time. Thanks for the recipe! It's going into our bi-weekly rotation! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used bagel chips and cornflakes. The chicken was moist and delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this last night and was happy with how it came out. I like a bit of kick, so the cayenne was perfect for me, although you may want to omit it if you're sensitive to any amount of heat. I substituted Cheez-Its for half the cereal to give it some tang. (Note: If you do this, omit the salt.) Next time, I'll probably use more dijon and less mayo. I'm also interested in using buttermilk, as one reader suggested. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was such a great find! Putting the chicken on top of the rack rested on the baking sheet made sure it was crispy all around. It's definitely got some kick to it, so if you don't like spicy, cut the cayenne in half! I used garlic flavored bagel chips and they worked great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
