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.

Healthy Fried Chicken

Ingredients

  1. 1/3 cup low-fat buttermilk
  2. 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives
  3. 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  4. 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
  5. 4 bone-in chicken breasts
  6. 1/2 cup dried breadcrumbs
  7. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, chives, mustard, and hot sauce. Remove the skin from the chicken breasts, add the chicken to the bowl, and let it soak for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Place the breadcrumbs in a wide, shallow bowl.
  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.
  5. Spray the chicken generously with cooking spray, and bake until it is just cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes.
