Every one like crispy and fried chicken but this crispy oven fried chicken is delicious and much healthier version than the traditional deep-fried one. This heart healthy fried chicken is quite easy to prepare and tastes better and kids would love to eat and we can too eat as many with guilt free. This dish takes absolutely no oil other than the non-stick cooking spray I sprayed over the chicken. Since this is the healthier version I even removed the skin, which contains more fat, and still it will be crispy and fabulous. You can use any part of the chicken you like and I used chicken drumstick, that’s my boy’s favorite. This chicken would be crispy outside and juicy inside.
Chicken drumstick – 4
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp
Chili powder – 1 and 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice – 1 tsp
Honey – 1 tsp
Panko Japanese style breadcrumbs – 1 cup
Egg – 1
All purpose flour – 2 tsp
Parmesan cheese – 2 tsp (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Non-stick cooking spray
Remove the skin from the chicken and soak in a bowl of water adding ½ tsp of chili powder, salt and lemon juice and refrigerate for at least minimum 3 hrs.
Preheat oven to 350*F
In a bowl beat egg and mix with it ginger garlic paste, ½ tsp chili powder, flour, honey and salt.
In a plate mix the panko breadcrumbs with Parmesan cheese and ½ tsp of chili powder.
Drop the chicken in the egg mix and coat well and dip in the breadcrumbs and evenly coat the chicken with it and place in a cookie sheet after spraying the non-stick spray.
Repeat this for all the chicken pieces and spray the cooking spray on the chicken and cook in the oven for 40 mins. Enjoy the healthier crispy oven fired chicken.
