I don't like deep frying. When I have a recipe that calls for deep frying, my husband normally does the honors. This mid-week recipe normally satisfies our craving for fried chicken.
6 chicken drumsticks skinned
4 chicken breast halves skinned
1/2 cup low fat buttermilk
2 cloves fresh garlic
1 tsp paprika
3 cups panko crumbs
3 tsp cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1) Combine buttermilk, garlic, and paprika in small bowl. Place chicken in large bowl. Pour buttermilk mixture over chicken. Marinate for 8 hrs.(shake it up to ensure its thoroughly coated)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2) Combine panko crumbs, garlic powder, cajun seasoning, and black pepper in large zip lock bag. Place chicken in bag one, by, one. Shake to coat. Place chicken on cooling rack placed on cookie sheet. Repeat with all pieces of chicken. When finished, spray all pieces of chicken with cooking spray. Place pan on lowest oven rack and cook for 45 minutes.
