This is hands down, one of the best recipes ever. I'd even dare to say...better than fried chicken because it tastes the same without the after effects of the deep fried! I used panko bread crumbs for the extra crunch and basically used any of my favourite dried seasonings. It also helped that I pre-seasoned the chicken with my mom's home-made seasoning to give it that extra flavour.
The mayo to coat is the best advice ever! It keeps the chicken so moist and holds the seasoned crust on the chicken for that bang of flavour, yet allows the crust to remain crunchy. I'll never use eggs again in this context.
My final tip - use a rack to rest the chicken on when baking. it ensures that the chicken remains crunchy and not get soggy as placing in the foil could sometimes encourage. Also, you don't have to deal with removing it from the foil with the best part of your chicken coming off. If you have a convection oven and you use the rack, it even cooks in less time :) So you do have to keep a close eye on it. mine took at least 15 mins less which was a plus, especially if you're hangry!
