Oven Fried Chicken with Creamy Garlic Sauce

I craved for KFC the other day after work. Wherever this happens, my husband will warn me KFC here in Vancouver is not as good as those in HK.

Where we were in HK, we would spend some nights having take-out from KFC. We would have a bucket of 10-pc chicken (either thighs or dumbsticks, we love dark meat!!!), corn sticks or coleslaw, and finish them with a movie!!! I just miss that moment.

Since we couldn't make one of the KFCs on the way home, I had to make my own fried chicken to fulfill my crave then.

(makes 8 chicken thighs)
For Chicken:
2 cups fresh bread crumbs
2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp onion powder
8 chicken thighs (if you prefer, you can have chicken breast)
3 tbsp melted unsalted butter

For Sauce:
2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup mayo
1 tsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
Salt and pepper to season

Preheat oven to 400F.

Mix sauce ingredients. Keep in refrigerator.

Mix chicken ingredients except chicken and butter.

Press chicken into the melted butter and turn to coat thoroughly with the mixture. Arrange the coated chicken in the baking dish.

Bake for 25 to 35 mins, turning after 15 mins. Chicken is done when juices run clear when pricked with a fork.
Serve hot with garlic sauce.

Just wondering....what is HK?

Also, I have to admit that KFC is not something I crave...ever. But your version looks quite nice!
