  • 1 chicken, about 3 1/2 pounds, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick fried chicken seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
  • 3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • Non-stick cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13-inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Pull off skin using a dry paper towel and place in prepared pan.
  3. Rub fried chicken seasoning into the chicken.
  4. Mix mayonnaise and mustard to blend, and then spread over chicken, coating all surfaces.
  5. Coat both sides of chicken with bread crumbs and arrange in prepared pan.
  6. Liberally spray non-stick cooking spray over chicken.
  7. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 1 hour. Chicken should be nicely browned and crunchy. Serve immediately.


Substitute 2 tablespoons olive oil for the mayonnaise or just use 3 tablespoons of olive oil or mayonnaise if you are not quite the Dijon fan that I am.
