Crispy Baked Chicken

Saturday, February 18, 2017

Our family love El Pollo Loco Chicken so I challenged my self to make the homemade version with organic chicken. A few weeks ago I shared some of this chicken with my neighbor and she said her picky eater son like it a lot. Yayyyy

First thing first:
Season the chicken with plenty of salt and pepper. I also add dashes of Old Bay Seasoning
then brown chicken on skin side for about 5 minutes (this can get pretty messy with the oil splatting all over so you may want to do it outside)
Transfer chicken, skin side up, to a baking dish and bake until thickest part registers 160 degrees Fahrenheit on thermometer, about 15-20 min.
