Recipe: Oven Fried Chicken

Okay, so you’ll have to turn on the oven to make this recipe from “Neo Soul” by Lindsey Williams.

But it’s worth it, and, best of all, it’s healthy.

Oven Fried Chicken

Yield: 6 servings

2 teaspoons dried thyme

2 teaspoons dried oregano

2 teaspoons dried basil

2 teaspoons garlic powder

2 teaspoons kosher salt

2 teaspoons fresh black pepper

6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

2 cups plain nonfat yogurt

2 cups Special K cereal, crushed with a rolling pin or in a food processor or coffee grinder

Nonstick cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

In a large plastic bag, combine the thyme, oregano, basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Shake well. Add two breasts at a time to the bag and shake to coat the chicken. Continue until all the breasts are coated.

Place the yogurt in a large bowl, and the cereal on a large plate. Dip each breast in the yogurt and then in the cereal. Place the chicken breasts on a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until the chicken is brown and cooked through. Do not cover or turn the chicken during the baking process.

When the chicken is completely cooked, remove the baking sheet from the oven and let cool ten minutes before serving.
