When I flip through my weekly gossip mags (don't judge me) I always love the section where they interview a particular celeb and they share what their favorite foods are and if they have to chose a last meal what it is. Nine times out of 10 it's fried chicken. Quick show of hands who likes fried chicken? That's right, EVERYONE loves fried chicken. We don't have a deep frier and I really didn't want to use buckets of oil to fry the chicken in so I found this amazing recipe from the Chobani website for oven friend chicken that marinates in non-fat GREEK YOGURT! Oh the tang! No buttermilk, no butter, no oil. It was amazing. You can marinate the chicken from 30 minutes to 12 hours so this is a great quick weeknight meal that I promise promise promise your whole family will love!
What you'll need:
1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
1 tbs. dijon mustard
3 cloves garlic, minced FINELY
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. baking powder
1. Mix together the yogurt, mustard, garlic, salt, and pepper in a very large bowl. Toss the chicken in the bowl, making sure every piece is very well coated with the yogurt mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 12 hours.
2. Preheat your oven to 425*. Line a baking sheet with foil and lay a wire rack over the top of it (you NEED to use one of these if you don't want the chicken to totally burn and cook evenly). Spray the rack with non-stick cooking spray.
3. In a large plastic bag, add the flour, paprika, and baking powder. Shake off the excess yogurt from the chicken, place half of the pieces in the bag, and give it a good shake. Repeat until all of the chicken is coated in the flour mixture.
4. Bake for 50-60 minutes (until the juices run clear when you cut into the breast).
