Fry Your Chicken and Eat It Too

How many times have you fried chicken without actually eating it due to health concerns?
Ellie Krieger, nutritionist and host of Food Network's Healthy Appetite, has a recipe for oven-fried chicken that's healthy and tasty.

Ellie Krieger's Oven-Fried Chicken

20 whole-grain salted crackers, finely pulsed
2 1/2 cups corn cereal flakes, finely pulsed
2 tbsps. sesame seeds
3/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

2 egg whites
1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp. salt

8 chicken pieces (4 each of skinless thighs and breasts) rinsed and patted dry
Olive oil cooking spray

1. Lightly grease baking sheet with cooking spray then pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Combine ingredients for breading mixture. Set aside.
3. Mix ingredients for marinade, add chicken pieces, and coat completely.
4. Dip each chicken piece into the breading mix. Press breading mix onto the chicken pieces for even coating.
5. Place chicken pieces onto your baking sheet and lightly spray with olive oil. Bake for 45 minutes or until juices run clear. Serve warm.
