So right off the bat let's just say that this is NOT fried chicken. Nothing tastes like fried chicken, nothing has that "crunch" and the crackling of fried chicken skin when you bite into it except for the real deal - if you're looking for an exact copy of fried chicken but without the fat/calories, you're barking up the wrong tree. That said - if you're looking for a healthier, lighter alternative to fried chicken, something that you can eat without any guilt (or greasy napkins) on a regular basis and feel good about, then you've come to the right place. And not a cornflake in sight!! Because this spicy oven-fried chicken adapted from an Epicurious recipe is awesome. It does have a light crunch, it's just a teensy bit spicy, and it has a nice fried-ish breaded feeling - but there's barely any added fat. Another big plus - I used boneless/skinless chicken thighs for this recipe, so there's no bones to worry about, no chicken skin to hem and haw over (because we all know the chicken tastes better with the skin on, but it's not exactly health food), and it cooks really quickly. We don't eat chicken very often - I definitely enjoy turkey burgers on a regular basis, but handling raw meat like chicken kind of weirds me out. I know, I know, it's silly (and no, the ground meat doesn't bother me as much), but everyone has their "thing" and that's one of mine (one of the MANY!). In any case, this chicken came about after I requested some recipe inspiration from Facebook friends. I asked if there were any requests - and I got two requests for "oven-fried chicken without any cornflakes". So I set out on a mission to make this happen, and voila! It did. I served this alongside a spinach salad with fresh peaches, gorgonzola, and sliced almonds, and it was a wonderful, healthy, filling end-of-summer dinner. The chicken is great as leftovers, too - slice or chop it up to go on salads, eat cold, layer on a sandwich, etc. I hope you enjoy this as much as The Mr. and I did - and I hope all of my Facebook friends are satisfied with this cornflake-less chicken recipe!
