This baked “fried chicken” recipe has been a will-power saver for years. When you are craving something deep-fried and crunchy, it’s crispy baked chicken to the rescue.
So… You’ve only been dieting for eleven days and already you’re craving fried chicken.
You probably haven’t had fried chicken for months, maybe years, but now that it’s officially off limits, it’s all you can think about.
You lay in bed at night with a pinch in your stomach and crispy little drumsticks dancing in your head.
Happens to me All. The. Time.
I can’t remember the first time I made “healthy” fried chicken, but I’m pretty sure it was right after the first time I discovered I needed to shed a few pounds.
That must have been 20+ years ago. Jeeeeeze!
This crispy baked chicken recipe has come in handy on many occasions. It’s an easy meal that comes together in minutes and the potential serving methods are endless.
I often serve crispy baked chicken over salads, yet even there, think of the options: Crispy Buffalo Chicken Salad, Crispy Baked Chicken Taco Salad, Baked “Fried Chicken” over Southern Slaw, Baked Chicken Cutlets over Field Greens with Fresh Berries and Goat Cheese…. I could go on.
I like to prepare baked chicken cutlets instead of whole chicken breasts for two reasons:
1. They cook faster.
2. Cutlets offer automatic portion control.
One cutlet is essentially half a large chicken breast, so they satisfy a craving and keep the calories on the down-low.
Also try using this healthy fried chicken recipe in lettuce wraps!
