Family Style Broiled Chicken Recipe

I wanted to put chicken on the menu for tonight’s supper, but I wanted to keep it simple and basic. This Family Style Broiled Chicken Recipe is simple and quick to put together. There is very little prep time so the chicken is broiled and on the table in less than an hour. This recipe has a simple blend of flavors that complement the chicken very well. I thought the smoked paprika was a nice touch; adding a touch of smoked flavoring. After brushing the chicken with the butter mixture several times I had quite a bit of the chopped onion left in the sauce, so I finished off by making sure I brushed the rest of the onion on the chicken during its final cooking time. If you don’t like a lot of onion, just leave it behind, using it just to flavor the sauce. If you’re looking for a simple and good recipe for supper, give this Family Style Broiled Chicken Recipe a try; you and your family will really enjoy it.

Crispy Baked Chicken Recipe

I don’t use cornflake crumbs much, so when I saw this Crispy Baked Chicken Recipe I decided to give it a try. The recipe claimed it tasted like fried chicken except it was a lot healthier; because it was baked in the oven. I didn’t think it even came close to as good as the fried chicken I have prepared, but it was very good. The texture was very crispy, and it had really good flavor. This is a very simple recipe with very little prep time. The chicken turns out nice and juicy because of the crispy corn flake crumb coating. If you’re in the mood to try something a little different give, this Crispy Baked Chicken Recipe a try; it’s pretty good. Enjoy


1 cut up chicken (breast, thighs, legs and wings)

1/2 cup all purpose flour

Salt and pepper

6 cups cornflakes

2/3 cups buttermilk

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)

1 1/2 teaspoons paprika

3/4 teaspoons ground sage


1. Preheat oven using center rack to 475F.

2. In a wide bowl (I use a glass pie plate for this) season the flour with salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.

3.  Rinse the chicken in cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Roll each chicken piece in the flour to lightly coat.

6. Dip each piece of chicken in the butter milk bath, then roll in the cornflake crumbs to coat.

7. Arrange the chicken pieces on a shallow baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 475.F. then reduce the heat to 375 and cook for another 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked though and crispy. (Juices should run clear and internal temperature should be 165F)
