|Just in time for Sunday dinner! Run, don't walk to the store and buy these ingredients! This is a "10"!|
I love fried chicken, in so many ways....it speaks to my soul, growing up with it every Sunday. However, I cringe at the thought of all that FAT! Thank goodness I have perfected a healthier oven-baked version, with a surprise ingredient, that tastes just as savory and juicy as the indulgent original. The original being "Dot's Sunday Fried Chicken", my Mom's fried chicken. We looked forward to this delicious, succulent fried chicken every Sunday, served with baked potatoes, green beans with bacon and buttermilk biscuits! YUM!
I created this recipe in the 1990's, when "Fat Free" was the way to go. I jumped on the band wagon with everyone else, discarding "Fat" like it wasn't necessary and working on recipes to make them "Fat Free"! Of course, we all know now that good fat is an important part of our diet. This uses cooking spray to create that crispy skin we love.........after all, whats the point of skinless fried chicken?
