Friday Food: Healthy Southern "Fried" Chicken

It seems counter intuitive but really it's pretty healthy and tastes fantastic.  Start summer off right with some "fried" chicken.  It is really good with homemade sweet potato fries and if you'd like a recipe for those please email us at

Healthy Southern "Fried" Chicken

Chicken Ingredients
1 Lb Chicken Tenders
1/4 Cup Panko Breadcrumbs

1/2 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
1/4 Cup Chopped Chives
Butter Flavored Non-Stick Cooking Spray
1 Cup Buttermilk

1/2 Small Onion Cut Into Wedges
2 Tbsp Chopped Parsley
1 Garlic Clove Minced
1 Tsp Red Wine Vinegar
1 Tsp Light Brown Sugar
1 Tsp Salt
1/2 Tsp Ground Pepper


Combine all of the marinade ingredient in a blender until smooth. Place chicken in a glass baking dish and pour marinade on it and cover and store in refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Combine the bread crumbs, chives and parmesan in a shallow baking dish and coat the chicken with the mixture. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and place chicken on a non-stick pan and bake for 20 minutes on 350 degrees. Enjoy this crispy "fried chicken" with a side of home made sweet potato wedges and string beans!
