Recipe renovation: Southern-style oven fried chicken
Smartpoints value per serving
You definitely can get that delicious, satisfyingly crispy taste of fried chicken from baking the chicken in the oven—trust us! The process and ingredients are the same, but there's no hot oil or deep-frying required. The flour mixture is seasoned with salt and a touch of cayenne pepper, while cornflake crumbs provide that delightfully crunchy texture. Dredge the chicken in the flour, then in low-fat buttermilk, then finally the crumbs, and bake 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, which should take just 20 minutes. You won't believe how similar it is to deep-fried chicken...and how much healthier it is for you.
