This low fat, gluten-free chicken recipe is one that is actually baked, yet tastes like it’s fried! Only it’s not! It’s skinless chicken lightly coated with extra-virgin olive oil and gluten-free crumbs then baked until chicken is crispy and crunchy on the outside, leaving meat moist and juicy on the inside. This chicken recipe will surely be the new favorite and one the whole family will enjoy!
As children, our mother ‘s recipe for this baked chicken was usually made with her bread crumb mixture, making the chicken tender and crispy. Making small changes in her recipe and removing the unhealthy parts, such as the skin and fat on the chicken, makes this a low-fat recipe. We even took it one step further, we also substituted her bread crumb mixture for the gluten-free corn crumbs, making the chicken even more flavorful while giving the crispy texture without the Gluten!
The outcome was amazing! Super moist meat with a crunchy crust on the outside, giving the taste of classic fried chicken, only it’s better! Without all the fat and calories, it’s ideal for anyone who loves chicken.
An easy recipe to prep in the morning or even the night before, then pop the chicken into the oven and bake. Serve with a side of rice or roasted potatoes and a green salad to round out the meal. And dinner is ready! Thanks for stopping by…..
