Diabetic Friendly Oven Fried Chicken

Happy, late, Thursday! It was a long night. On my quest to find a delicious, healthy alternative to fried chicken (my favorite)! I have come across a winner....I think! I found the recipe while skimming the Internet, and it's diabetic friendly and only 267 calories a serving, so I can make a 500 calorie dinner with this!!! The picture and recipe are courtesy of Diabetic Living. Really, you can find delicious, healthy recipes ANYWHERE!!!

Here's the recipe...

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 2 pounds total)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Olive oil nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 1/4 cups crushed cornflakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder or dried minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder or dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Snipped fresh parsley (optional)
  • In a large resealable plastic bag, combine chicken and buttermilk. Seal bag; turn to coat chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 8 hours, turning occasionally.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil; coat foil with nonstick cooking spray. Drain chicken, discarding excess buttermilk.
  • In another large resealable plastic bag, combine crushed cornflakes, garlic, onion, paprika, and pepper; seal bag. Shake well to combine. Add chicken, one piece at a time, and shake the bag to coat the chicken well.
  • Place chicken on the prepared baking sheet. Coat chicken with nonstick cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F). Sprinkle with parsley before serving if desired.
I will be trying this tonight or tomorrow night and I will give you a full review!!! Doesn't that look delicious!!!! I will include pictures and my whole 500 calorie meal! Do you have a favorite unhealthy dish you'd like me to find a healthier version of? Just comment below :)

This looks fantastic, thank you for sharing. I am not sure if there is a reduced calorie buttermilk or not, if so will it work with this?
Thank you
