The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of deep-fat frying and roasting coated chicken thigh parts on lipid oxidation in meat and skin during heating and subsequent refrigerated storage. TBA analysis and sensory evaluation of taste and flavour were used to detect changes in lipid oxidation. The results indicated that coating of chicken thigh parts had an effect on lower weight losses and lower TBA values during heating. This positive influence was bigger in deep-fat fried than roasted parts. Coating also reduced the rate of lipid oxidation in meat and skin during refrigerated storage of heated chicken thigh parts for both used cooking methods. Meat from coated deep-fat fried and roasted chicken parts obtained significantly higher scores of taste and flavour in comparison to meat from non-coated samples.
