Searing chicken before breading

antihawk | Jul 29, 2016 01:42 PM

Hi, all.

I'm making "oven-fried" chicken tomorrow. Obviously this means breaded chicken baked, not deep-fried.

I tried Googling it, but nothing came up on the first couple of pages. I had a thought of searing the chicken before dredging it, plunging it in egg wash and then breadcrumbs.

Would this actually work, and add more flavour to the chicken?

I would essentially sear it on high heat on both sides, then bread it, then bake it until ready.
