Oven Fried Chicken
This recipe has some steps but is well worth it. My husband doesn't even want regular fried chicken anymore. This chicken is a once a week dish for us and now, hopefully for your family too.
Buttermilk isn't always in the house so I make my own. Just take milk and 1-2 T vinegar mix together, let sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes.
I will take the skin off mine, and also add whole wheat flour to make this healthier. Gluten free no problem Cup 4 Cup works, great!
A great healthy alternative to fried.
1- 2 tsphot sauce (or to taste)
1-2 tspgarlic powder
1-2 tsponion powder
2-3 Tbspblack pepper
1 Tbsppaprika, hot
1-2 Tbspgarlic powder
1-2 Tbsponion powder
1/8 tspcream of tartar
3 Tbspcanola oil
