You'll swear this chicken, lower in fat and calories but still crunchy and delicious, was made in the frying pan. Using skinless chicken lowers the fat content by almost half and the calories by about a third. Whole-wheat breading adds a little fiber to an already-healthier oven-fried chicken.

Cook's Notes

Baking the chicken on a wire rack keeps the bottom of the pieces from becoming soggy. For spicier chicken, add a few shakes of hot sauce to the buttermilk.

    Has anyone else noticed that this is the WRONG video / WRONG recipe? Recipe is for Oven-Fried Chicken with a crust of whole-wheat breadcrumbs - NOT cornflakes. Video is for Cornflake-Crusted Baked Chicken. They are two totally different recipes.

    Is there something I can substitute for the corn flakes in the coating? I don't use cereal or crackers.

    Since I didn't want to put the chicken straight on the wire rack, it didn't come out like the picture, but it was AMAZING!!! Really juicy and full of flavour! It was also very quick and easy to make. Everone loved it!

    Juicy and tasty! I felt good about serving this to my family. Even my 1 year old loved it. I used twice the buttermilk and garlic plus added a bit of hot sauce and marinated overnight. I added a little thyme to the breadcrumbs. I'm definitely going to pass this recipe along.

    Its nice to read previews reviews and I made this recipe before, I didn't use garlic just salt and pepper. Southwest spices to the bread crumbs, follow the cook process...done!!! my kids love the flavor, healthier way and better than any other recipe...thanks Martha

    My husband described this as "fried chicken as they would make it in Paris." He loved it. I chose it because I am very picky about what oils I will use and this used olive oil. Delicious! Kids loved it too.

    This was easy! Marinating overnight helps to really absorb the flavors

    Delicious flavor! I used 1/2 c buttermilk, 2 garlic cloves, and a 1 pound package of chicken thighs. I also used canned bread crumbs instead of making my own.
