Oven ‘Fried’ Chicken {with Sriracha Honey}.

I’ve made this dish three times now trying to capture the right picture (still working on that).  Well and also because this chicken so goodThree times in 10 days good.  There’s one other reason.

Oven Fried Chicken

This Oven ‘Fried’ Chicken is first coated with dried herbs mixed with my new bff fat free Greek yogurt (I haven’t quite worked up to having it for breakfast but it’s a great way to make glorious panko bread crumbs stick to chicken).  Then the chicken is dredged in seasoned panko bread crumbs and baked with ‘no oil’ in a hot oven until crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.  What does that all mean? 

And for the other reason I love this Oven ‘Fried’ Chicken {with Sriracha Honey}  ….. because it weighs in at 250 calories per serving and that includes the Sriracha Honey Sauce.  Your welcome.
