Skillet Baked Chicken

Iron Skillet Baked Chicken from Table for Seven

Skillet Baked Chicken! A delicious, crispy, chicken that bakes in your skillet.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Boneless chicken breasts
  • Flour
  • Egg
  • Milk
  • Dried Spices: Paprika-Poultry Seasoning-Black Pepper
  • Oil

Chicken: You will need 1.25 lbs. Depending on sizes, this could be anywhere from 2-4 pieces

Dried Spices: Feel free to increase/decrease the dried spices to your taste preference.

How to Make (full instructions in recipe card):

  • Pat chicken breasts dry. In a large plastic storage bag, add flour and dried spices. Set aside.
  • In a shallow dish, whisk together egg and milk.
  • Working in batches, place the chicken breasts in the storage bag and seal. Shake to coat.
  • Remove from the bag and coat in the egg/milk mixture. Then, coat it again in your flour mixture.
  • Cook each piece of coated chicken in an oven safe skillet. Brown chicken for about 5 minutes or so on each side. You are just getting the outside brown, not cooking completely!
  • Again, do this in batches and don’t overcrowd your skillet.
  • Once they are browned, bake them in a preheated oven. Be sure to let them rest for about 5 minutes before cutting/serving.

Notes:

  • I used my iron skillet for this, but, any kind of oven-safe skillet will work fine.
  • Cooking time may vary, depending on the size/thickness of your chicken. The internal temperature of your chicken should be at least 165 degrees when done.
