View Full Version : Oven-fried chicken on perchment paper....
I made Oven-Fried Chicken from April 02 last night, along with micro-waved rosemary red potatoes (I decided to use microwave version this time because my oven was full!) and asparagas with browned butter. They're all very yummy.
However, the chicken stick to the perchment paper....CL said put perchment paper (wax paper....right? that's what I used.) on baking dish and put chickens on it. One thing I did maybe wrong is I sprayed PAM on the paper.... I didn't read the direction carefully so when I sprayed the other dish for asparagus, I just did it to the chicken pan, too. Outside of chicken was very delish but it ended up sticking on the pan, most of them...:confused:
Anyone can tell me why? Maybe perchment paper should not be sprayed at all?

Did you like the chicken, I made it and was not impressed.

Wax paper and parchment paper are two different animals. Wax paper is not suitable for oven use; however, it is great for microwave. Parchment can be used in oven up to 450 degrees. I don't know the answer to the spraying Pam question

Parchment paper is not the same as wax paper. Too bad, since parchment paper costs about 3 times as much. Also, wax paper would probably not hold up as well under the juices of the chicken. I've only used parchment paper for baking though, not for meat, so don't know how it would work there.
So that was my fault...I used a wax paper, just assuming it was the same thing. And sushibones is right. It didn't hold up to the temperture of oven. It broke, so all juices and crispy part stick to even pan!!
As for chicken, it was okay. First bite reminded me of KFC chicken. (But way more healthier, I think...) I don't think it'll be our repeater, but if you have a craving for KFC, this'd do it!
Gotta go shopping to get perchment paper....:D

Yes, parchment and wax paper are two different things. Parchment paper is coated with silicone, so it withstands high temperatures. Wax paper is coated with wax, and it melts and even smokes in the oven temps.
Parchment isn't that expensive from Bridge Kitchenware. You buy large sheets and then cut them in half for your sheet pans. Also, it's re-usable. With just baking cookies I get about 6 uses out of each sheet. Some cookies mess it up, but many don't. Wax paper is okay in a pinch for lining the bottom of a cake pan or quick breads, but not for baking in the oven.
I can't live without it!!
Yes, actually there was some smoke from oven last night.,..:eek:
I'm wondering, if that wax used on wax paper is safe...we didn't detect any strange taste on chicken...hope it's not TOXIC!!!
Thanks for all information. Now I should be a better cook.:)

We thought this chicken was very good...crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. Everyone liked it. I didn't have enough flour mixture for all the pieces so I would make more next time...maybe half again as much. The leftovers tasted like leftovers. They weren't as good, but we ate them right down.
The chicken only stuck slightly to the parchment paper...not a big deal. For fried chicken, I would make it again.
