Crispy Chicken Steaks in the Oven – Between Carpools

This is how chicken will once again become an important main dish.

I love it when I get a recipe from Ruchi D. in my inbox, I know it will be something simple yet classy and it will taste amazing. The original recipe goes back to her sister-in-law’s mother-in-law who got it from a friend.

Chicken steaks are basically a quarter leg of partially deboned chicken – this used to be a special request from your butcher, but lately it can be found in most major supermarkets. We love that even though it’s chicken, it’s different and a step up from your usual chicken dish. And it’s pretty on the plate and it smells good when it’s cooking.

Can’t find chicken steaks? This recipe works great with black chicken cutlets (for baby).
