low fat fried chicken


Fried chicken that’s only lightly fried then baked to finish cooking.  (Less absorption of fat for those who are so concerned. But just as delicious!)

Soaked the chicken drumsticks in buttermilk overnight then coated them in flour mixed with thyme, cayenne, paprika, salt and pepper.  Preheated oven to 350F. Fried in batches in just few tablespoons of sunflower oil (canola, grapeseed fine) over medium high heat until golden brown. Placed in baking dish and continued to bake for about a half an hour until 165F reading on instant thermometer. (Have links to one on side bar.)

Served with TJ’s Harvest Grains, spinach and green beans.  

All 3 liked it, but it took a while for my youngest to want to try it.
