"Oven Fried" Chicken (and Shnitzel too)

Everyone loves Fried Chicken, but all that oil doesn't appeal to me. So instead of frying it, I BAKE my "fried" chicken.

It's easy, and delicious, and here's how I do it:

Mix equal parts flour (I use whole spelt flour these days, but it works really well with whole wheat too) and yellow corn meal with spices (I usually use black pepper, cayenne pepper, parsley, and granulated garlic) in a "ziploc"-style bag, or in a bowl.

Coat shnitzel pieces with mixture. 

Arrange in a well oiled baking pan, "mist"the top with oil, and bake, covered, at 200 C - coating will get all deliciously crispy. Usually done in about 25 min, but I don't use super-thin shnitzel.

I do the same with cut up pieces of chicken, without adding any oil to the pan, (tightly covered in foil) only those cook for much longer! I usually leave those for about 1.5 hrs.
