Calories: 533


3 PERDUE® Fresh Split Chicken Breasts
3 PERDUE® Fresh Chicken Thighs (4-5 pcs)
3 PERDUE® Fresh Chicken Drumsticks
1/4 cup canola oil
Salt to taste
1 jar yellow mustard (6 ounces)
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 cup self-rising flour


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Pour oil into 13x9-inch baking pan and place in oven to preheat.
  2. Salt chicken pieces lightly.
  3. In wide, shallow bowl or pie plate, combine mustard, hot pepper sauce and ground red pepper.
  4. Place flour on large platter or waxed paper. Coat chicken thoroughly with mustard mixture, then roll in flour.
  5. Place chicken in preheated baking pan and oven-fry 35-40 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through, turning halfway through cooking. A meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of thigh should register 180°F.


Oven-frying has replaced pan-frying for many because it uses less oil, but if you would like to pan-fry Cajun Chicken in the classic way, use a large, heavy skillet or deep fryer and 1/2 inch oil.
