Healthy Fried Chicken

Comfort Under 350 Calories: Oven-Fried Chicken

Fried chicken is the definition of Southern comfort, but just one piece can weigh in at over 700 calories. Skip the classic, and opt for this lower-calorie, just-as-delicious alternative that's baked in the oven. Tender, moist, and crunchy on the outside, this oven-fried chicken is a quick meal for one of those nights when you're craving something comforting but refuse to leave the table feeling uncomfortably stuffed.

If you're cooking this recipe as part of the Get Fit 2015 meal plan, serve with steamed broccoli with freshly squeezed lemon and three-quarters cup coleslaw.

1/2 cup dried breadcrumbs

  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade, and season it with salt and pepper.
  4. Dip the chicken into the breadcrumbs, and toss well to coat. Place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet.
