(Not) Fried Chicken

19.3.12 1 comments

I speak for a big universe when I say that even once in our lives, especially the first few parts of it, that Fried Chicken is everyone's favorite. It's a no-brainer, basic, tasty dish. Unfortunately, our doctors might not agree. Fried foods, they say aren't really the healthiest stuff. Thus begins the quest to marry the 2.

Presenting the (Not) Fried Chicken. It's baked to perfection, and the use of Cornflakes and toasted crushed croutons gives the much needed crisp. Another thing good about these also is that it's great even right off the fridge, since it does not contain saturated fats that freezes when cold making the chicken tough. These babies are soft and moist even when cold.
