I absolutely love Fried Chicken (for my recipe, click here). The combination of the crispy, seasoned skin with the juicy meat is probably one of the best things in the culinary world. However, with Summer, and bathing suit season quickly approaching, I realized I need to give up some of my unhealthier foods for healthier alternatives.
So last night I wanted to mimic the Fried Chicken tastes and textures but instead of deep frying the chicken, I baked it… and to tell you the truth, I actually liked this baked version better! The skin comes out perfectly crisp while the inside remained juicy and tender. Not only is this a healthier option, but you don’t have to clean up after a deep fryer when you’re done cooking!
