I am a Mom and am always trying to cook healthy, yet pleasing meals that my kids will like to eat. My kids LOVE fried chicken! I don't love all of the fat and extra calories involved. So, I have created a recipe that gives them the satisfying texture and crunchiness of fried chicken without all of the unhealthy fats involved.



Preheat over to 375 degrees F.

Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. I like to add more mustard powder, paprika, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper flakes for an extra kick.

For extra juicy chicken, soak it in water or 1/2 water 1/2 milk for at least 4 hours prior to cooking. I soak overnight.

Mix eggs, water and Italian dressing or dressing powder (you can always just add garlic powder, onion flakes, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, oregano, sage, parsley, dried lemon powder, or, if possible, ascorbic acid and create your own)

Dip the chicken in the egg mixture, coat well. Immediately dredge into the flour mixture. Pat breading onto chicken, make sure all wet areas are coated well. Continue until all chicken has been breaded.


Add 1 or 2 tablespoons vegetable oil into baking dish or cookie sheet. Spread evenly. Place chicken pieces 1-2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until juices run clear. Use less time for boneless chicken (about 25-30 minutes).

I like this because it is an inexpensive, healthy way to feed my family.


  • 1 chicken
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • dash pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 3/4 cup cornflakes crumbs


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wash and dry chicken pieces. Season the pieces, dip them into milk, and coat with corn flake crumbs. Arrange in single layer in an oiled shallow baking dish. Pieces of chicken should not touch each other. Bake 45 minutes. You can turn them half way through cooking time if you like.

Great coating mix on this chicken! I prefer to do 'fried' chicken this way instead of actually frying it!


  • 1 Tbsp. margarine
  • 2/3 cup Bisquick baking mix
  • 1 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • chicken pieces


Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Heat margarine in 9x13 inch pan until melted. Mix baking mix, paprika, salt and pepper; coat chicken. Place chicken, skin side down, in pan. Bake, uncovered 35 minutes. Turn and bake about 15 minutes longer. Refrigerate left-over coating mix.

Servings: about 6-8
Prep Time: 15-20 Minutes
Cooking Time: 50 Minutes

  • 1/2 cup milk or buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. poultry seasoning
  • 1 cup cornflakes, crumbled
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. dried hot pepper, crushed
  • 1 tsp. ginger, ground
  • 8 pieces chicken, skinless (4 breasts, 4 drumsticks)
  • Few shakes of paprika
  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Add 1/2 tsp. of poultry seasoning to milk.combine all other spices with cornflake crumbs and place in plastic bag. Wash chicken and pat dry. Dip chicken into milk, shake to remove excess, then quickly shake in bag with seasoning and cornflake crumbs. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Remove from refrigerator and sprinkle lightly with paprika for color. Evenly space chicken on greased baking pan. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for an added 30 to 40 minutes, or until meat can be easily pulled away from bone with fork. Drumsticks may require less baking time than breasts. {Do NOT turn chicken during baking}. Crumbs will form crispy "skin".
