To cook chicken in the oven, line a rimmed baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Place the breaded chicken on the prepared pan and roast in a 400°F oven for 35 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the chicken without touching bone reaches 160°F, turning once halfway through cooking. Let the chicken stand 5 minutes to allow juices to redistribute. 

 

Try serving chicken drizzled with Rub Some Chicken Buffalo Sauce and/or blue cheese dressing.
