Grease Is the Word: Fun Fried Chicken Alternatives
To achieve that crunchy goodness, frying isn't always necessary. When done right, oven-baked chicken can come out just as crispy on the outside and moist on the inside as fried chicken.
Crispy Baked Chicken Recipe
(recipe adapted from AllRecipes.com)
- 1 whole fryer chicken, cut into pieces (legs, thighs, breasts, etc.)
