Healthier Fried Chicken

Fried chicken is typically considered a less healthy food due to the high fat content from deep frying. However, here’s a healthier twist on a classic recipe:

Baked “Fried” Chicken Recipe


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • Cooking spray


– Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

– In a shallow bowl, mix together the flour, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.

– In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and egg.

– Dip each chicken breast into the buttermilk mixture, then coat with the flour mixture.

– Place the chicken on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and spray with cooking spray.

– Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the coating is crispy.

– Serve with your favorite healthy sides, such as roasted vegetables or a salad.

This “fried” chicken recipe is a healthier alternative to traditional deep-fried chicken. By baking the chicken instead of frying it, you can significantly reduce the fat content while still enjoying a delicious and satisfying meal.
