Pollo frito al horno, also known as baked fried chicken, is a dish made by coating chicken pieces in a mixture of flour, spices, and other seasonings, then baking them in the oven until they are cooked through and crispy on the outside. Here is a simple recipe you can try:
- 4-6 chicken pieces (such as drumsticks or thighs)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons hot sauce (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
- In a large bowl, mix together the flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the milk and hot sauce (if using).
- Dip the chicken pieces in the milk mixture, then coat them in the flour mixture. Place the coated chicken pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
- Bake the chicken for 30-35 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) and the outside is crispy and golden brown.
- Serve the baked fried chicken hot, with your choice of dipping sauces or sides. Enjoy!
