The taste of fried chicken is the best, but the calories and the fat grams are not worth it…or is it? Regardless if the Colonel has removed the word “fried” from his tasty buckets of chicken, that stuff is not any healthier. So here’s a healthier idea, and it’s cheap too. Make a healthier friedless chicken using just a few ingredients.
You’ll need the following:
2 skinless-boneless chicken breasts
2 cups plain non-fat yogurt
1 cup of crushed cornflakes cereal
Add Spice if desired
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F
Dip each chicken breasts in yogurt, until completely coated.
Roll the yogurt coated chicken onto the crushed cornflake crumbs and coat all sides.
Once coated, stare at the chicken for about 30 seconds, but do not eat just yet!
Place chicken onto a cookie sheet and bake the chicken in the oven for 60 minutes. (Do not flip)
Now it is ready to serve!
This recipe is under 250 calories per serving (compared to the almost 800 calories from a deep fried version with the skin) around 11 grams of fat (compared to around 40 grams) the sodium is just under 300 grams (compared to above 3000 grams). You’ll have to check your actual ingredients nutrition labels for an accurate count, but this gives you a pretty clear idea on how much healthier this version is. The recipe is so easy, it won’t take you much to make this and see if you like the taste as well. This is just a fun recipe that you can make with someone you love!
Remember, if two young pups like Lily & Spike can make this, so can you!
