My newest creation using coconut flour, and it turned out fantastic.This is my interpretation of a healthier version of fried chicken prepared with coconut flour in the oven. This recipe adds more than 25 grams fiber to the total recipe. Coconut flour makes this a sure winner by cutting back on some of the carbs used in regular A.P. flour. I wanted the recipe to be Crispy on the outside, and moist, succelent and juicy on the inside & I succeeded.This was my first try with this recipe. I could have removed the skin but chose to leave it to capture moisture, & remove after cooking.
PREHEAT OVEN TO 425 DEGREES F. In a large shallow baking pan, like Jelly Roll or half sheet cake pan,, add a baking rack and spray liberally with non stick cooking spray, and set aside till needed.
Combine all of the spices and cheese in a gallon size recloseable bag, and shake to combine thourgly. When well mixed place a nice amount on a plate or pan, then wash chicken, but do not pat dry. Dredge in spice mixture to cover completely.
Place each piece on prepared baking rack, and repeat till all of the pieces have been fully coated. Spray pieces lightly with non stick cooking spray. Add more coating mix to plate if needed. When you are done, if you did not contaminate the remaining mixture with the wet chicken, you can take whats left and store in freezer for the next time. I like to keep extra seasoning already prepared in freezer.
Place pan with rack in preheated 425 degree F. oven and bake for 25 minutes. Then REDUCE TEMPERATURE to 350 degrees F, and continue to cook for 50 to 55 minutes or until juices run clear. Pieces should be fully cooked and a nice golden brown color.
Please Note, by adding fiber to your diet you can help to keep your blood sugar levels better controlled. Even if you are not diabetic, fiber is good for the body, it keeps you regulated, if you allow enough in your diet on a regular basis. Just trying to incorporate more fiber in my everyday routine.
