Everyone knows that baked foods are healthier. Unfortunately, baked foods can be a bit soggy. This means that people usually break out the deep fryer when making French fries, chicken tenders, and other crispy snacks. It's easy to get baked food crisp; you just need to follow a few simple steps.
Spray the pan with nonstick cooking spray. Nonstick cooking spray may keep your food from sticking, but it can also get your foods crispy. Just gently spray the pan and you're all set for the next step.
Place the food on the pan in an even layer. It's essential to place the food in an even layer and allow a bit of space between each piece. If you don't follow this step, the food will steam and be soggy.
Spray the food with nonstick cooking spray. If you don't follow this step, the food will only be crisp on the bottom. You will need to spray the food a bit more than you sprayed the pan. This ensures that the sides also get nice and crisp as well.
Turn on the broiler for the last few minutes of baking. This ensures that the baked food is as crispy as possible.
Tips & Warnings
- Watch the oven closely once you turn the broiler on or you could burn the food.
- Don't add too much nonstick cooking spray or your baked food will be unhealthy.
