    Bobby Deen's Un-fried Chicken

    Saw Bobby Deen (Paula Deen's son) make this healthy version of her fried chicken. Made it last night more as chicken tenders and they were good. Even better cold, tastes just like fried chicken.


    8 skinless boneless chicken thighs, trimmed of all visible fat (about 1 1/2 pounds)
    1/2 teaspoon Paula Deenís House Seasoning
    1/4 cup reduced fat buttermilk
    Zest and juice of 1 lemon
    2 egg whites
    1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
    1 1/4 cups cereal crumbs, preferred brand cornflakes
    Cooking Spray, for skillet

    Paula Deen's House Seasoning:
    1 cup salt
    1/4 cup black pepper
    1/4 cup garlic powder
    Note: Can be stored in an airtight container for up to 6 months.


    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

    Spray a large cast-iron skillet with nonstick spray and heat over medium-high.

    Sprinkle the chicken with the House Seasoning. In a large bowl, combine the buttermilk, lemon zest, juice, egg whites, and hot sauce. Add the chicken; toss to coat.

    Place the cornflake crumbs in another large bowl. Dip the chicken into the crumbs, pressing so the crumbs adhere. Place the chicken in the prepared skillet and then transfer to the oven.

    Bake until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through, 40-45 minutes.

    Ooh, that sounds really good! I will definitely need to try it....we were just talking about fried chicken the other night. This sounds much healthier and without the mess of frying.
