Oven Fried Chicken Goes Healthy!

1˝ cups low fat buttermilk
˝ teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)
Sea salt to taste

6 chicken thighs (bone in) 6 drumsticks
1 ˝ cups Panko bread crumbs
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

In a large zip-lock bag, place buttermilk, cayenne pepper and sea salt to taste. Add chicken pieces ~ press out the excess air ~ zip bag closed and toss to coat. Refrigerate chicken for at least one hour or overnight. This is a great do ahead recipe as I recommend that this part of the recipe be done the night before.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a heavy half sheet pan with sides with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine the Panko breadcrumbs with the lemon peel.

Remove the chicken from the bag and shake off the excess marinade. Discard the marinade. Add the chicken pieces to the breadcrumb mixture ad coat well. Place the breaded chicken onto the prepared pan. Bake for about 30 ~ 35 minutes or until the coating is crisp and juices run clear when thickest part of chicken is pierced with the tip of a knife. If chicken is not browned enough, it’s OK to broil the tops a bit under the broiler. Serve immediately.

Serves: 6
