My husband loves, loves, LOVES fried chicken! As for me, I like eating it but want nothing to do with the messy pans and splattered grease all over my kitchen, to say nothing of the calories that come with deep frying.
This oven-made fried chicken recipe would make us both happy ... it uses boneless, skinless breasts, and instead of frying, it cooks in the oven in a bit of butter for maximum flavor and minimum fat! However, it boasts a crispy, flavorful coating just like the classic preparation. Best of all, it uses a disposable pan, so you can take it to a picnic or potluck or just toss the whole thing when you're done. This would be a great homemade alternative for nugget-loving kids, too.
