This recipe for Low Fat Oven Fried Chicken makes a delicious, crisp coating for chicken, and oven baking gives a healthier, non greasy dish that’s quick and easy to prepare.
This recipe is a low fat oven fried chicken that’s really tasty with virtually no added fat.
To be fair, this isn’t really a fried chicken recipe because the truth is, it isn’t fried (or oven fried) at all. It’s not even a low fat fried chicken because except for some cooking spray that is sometimes added at the end, it actually had no added oil what so ever and it comes out crispy, juicy and absolutely scrumptious!
This recipe is probably one of the recipes I make the most for my family out of all my recipes. It’s so quick, easy and unbelievably good, that my family asks for it on a regular basis.
I probably make this chicken 3 times a month and for a food blogger that has to constantly cook new dishes – that’s a lot!
