New Oven Fried Chicken Recipe

I can't make good fried chicken. When ever I try, it just does not turn out.

So, I thought I'd browse the internet and see if I could find a new fried chicken recipe. When I saw this recipe, I thought yummmm!!!Not only was I hoping to get that crispy fried chicken effect, but since it's oven fried, I'm being healthy, and cutting down on the fats.

Buttermilk Oven-Fried Chicken
YIELD Makes about 8 servings

1‑1/2 cups low-fat buttermilk
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons dried thyme, divided
1 teaspoon dried sage
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2‑1/2 pounds chicken pieces, skin removed
Nonstick cooking spray
1‑1/2 cups panko bread crumbs*
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
*Panko bread crumbs are light, crispy, Japanese-style bread crumbs. They can be found in the Asian aisle of most supermarkets. Unseasoned dry bread crumbs can be substituted.
  1. Whisk buttermilk, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, salt, 1 teaspoon thyme, sage, paprika and pepper in large bowl until well blended. Add chicken; turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 5 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line 2 baking sheets with foil; spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. Combine bread crumbs, flour, remaining 1 teaspoon garlic powder and 1 teaspoon thyme in large shallow bowl. Remove chicken from buttermilk mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Coat chicken pieces one at a time with crumb mixture. Shake off excess crumbs. Place on prepared baking sheets; let stand 10 minutes.
Spray tops of chicken pieces with cooking spray. Bake about 50 minutes or until chicken is golden brown and juices run clear, turning once and spraying with additional cooking spray halfway through baking time. 
I got up early this morning (4:30) so I could get this in the oven before the day started getting warm.
Just took my chicken out of the oven and had to do a trial taste test. I do believe I'm gonna keep this recipe
Fix some potato salad and slice some watermelon and I'll have a nice cool dinner for a very hot day!!!!!!


  1. This looks really good! I'll have to give it a try. Thanks.

  2. Update on the chicken recipe. Turned out pretty scrumptious. I used red pepper flakes instead of hot sauce and I soaked it overnight in buttermilk.
    Definitely gonna keep this recipe.
