Buttermilk Oven Fried Chicken Thighs. In foil lined 15 x l0 inch baking pan melt margarine in oven 3 to 5 minutes or until bubbly. A lot of skinny recipes tend to lack flavor but not this one.
I ve tried a lot of oven fried chicken recipes using a variety of crunchy coatings and this is the only one i ve made again and again. With this two step skillet and oven method you don t sacrifice the crunchy coating and flavor you get with deep fried chicken. Soaking the chicken in buttermilk gives a great tangy flavor and also keeps the meat juicy.
The recipe comes from my friend gina homolka in her book the skinnytaste cookbook and it s the best buttermilk oven fried chicken i ve ever tried.
Bake until golden brown. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk dredge each piece in the crumb mixture and put the pieces onto the prepared baking sheet. A lot of skinny recipes tend to lack flavor but not this one. Combine all of the breading ingredients in a large bowl then roll the marinated chicken pieces in the flour shaking off excess.
