How to Make Crunchy Oven-Fried Chicken

book coverFor oven-fried chicken that's as good as real fried chicken, it's important to use the right coatings -- the moist one that helps the crumbs stick and the dry one that offers texture and crunch.

For the ultimate crunchy oven-fried chicken, use ground-up Melba toasts, which can be easily turned into crumbs with a rolling pin or in a food processor.

For a moist coating that attracts the right proportion of crumbs, seasons the meat without being too obvious and helps the crust stay crunchy during baking, use a mixture of eggs, salt, pepper and Dijon mustard.
