【烤箱版"炸“鸡】Oven Baked “Fried Chicken”


This spicy oven baked "fried" chicken is a real treasure I found from a Chinese website, I can't really remember the original recipe anymore. I whipped up this version using the method I remembered from reading the recipe earlier. It turned out sooo yumm!

I particularly love the way it was made without a drop of oil and still turned out to be crunchy, just the way I liked my fried chicken to be!

4-6块 Chicken Thigh/鸡腿

1 小勺 盐 (或是适量)
1 小勺 酱油 Optional
1 大勺 辣椒粉 (可适量减少)
1/2 小勺 孜然粉 可无

1/4 杯 玉米面 (不是玉米淀粉,是玉米粉)
1/4 杯 硬麦/Semolina 粉 (Suji)
1/4 杯 低筋面粉
1/4 小勺 胡椒粉

2 Chicken quarter back attached cut into 4 pieces.

For Marination:
One teaspoon of salt (it is really to your taste)
One teaspoon of soya sauce
One tablespoon of kashmiri chilli powder (use paprika for less spicy version)
1/2 teaspoon of cumin powder

For dredging:
1/4 cup of corn meal meal (Makka ki Atta)
1/4 cup of Semolina powder (suji)
1/4 cup of all purpose flour (maida)
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper powder
a pinch of salt

1。 先把鸡肉处理干净,加入腌料腌2-4个小时.把裹粉准备好。




1. First, mixed chili powder, soya sauce, spices and salt to marinate the chicken for 2-4 hours, you can marinate it overnight, it will taste even better.

2. Meanwhile, mixed together corn meal, semolina powder, all purpose flour, salt and pepper for dredging. Dredge the marinated chicken in flour and shake off excess.

3. Preheat oven to 400 F (205 C), place the chicken pieces on a oven baking sheet that allows oil dripping, place chicken skin down and bake for 22-minutes. Turn the chicken and bake for 15 more minutes until it turned golden brown.

Here is my Spicy Oven Baked Fried chicken:

  1. Hi Echo -

    I'm Christina, Kit's good friend! She told me about you after her recent trip to US, and I said - wow, I've been to your blog before then! Love your blog! Kit is excited to go to go Malaysia and meet up with you again!

    I like this particular dish "Oven Baked Fried Chicken" - but as I'm now living in Shanghai, I cannot get a lot of ingredients, and if they're available, they're super expensive, as they're imported. So I'm wondering, what can i subsitute "corn meal meal" for and also "semolina powder"? Thanks to let me know!


    1. Hey there... sorry for a little late in reply.... I am currently visiting india and was between transit and fighting jet lagged.

      Thanks for visiting my blog!!

      You may not find semolina in China but corn meal is widely available in China, it is the main ingredients for 窝窝头 , and it is called 玉米面, normally yellow in color.

      You can substitute the part of semolina with another part of corn meal, it will work quite the same... do come back to me if you need any extra information.

  2. Hi Echo,

    Many thanks! Enjoy your time with Kit!!
