Happy Easter guys! What does Easter really mean to you? Is it just a time you celebrate because you don’t get to go to work? Or is there a deeper meaning attached to it? Well, as you think about it, treat yourselves to this delicacy….
I saw this recipe somewhere and I knew I had to try it. You know, my love for fried foods is insatiable. Kwanza my relationship with chicken. It’s on another level. I actually want to start hitting the gym soon, just to- you know, burn the calories I take in.
Any who, so I screenshot the recipe and being in the Easter season, what a better way than to celebrate it in an affordable way in the comfort of your home?
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup low fat buttermilk
1/4 cup sriracha sauce (it’s basically chilli sauce)
1 cup bread crumbs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
3 tablespoons canola oil
What to do:
Trim chicken beasts if necessary and slice each into 2-3 strips.
In a large container, combine buttermilk and sriracha. Add chicken strips, seal, and give it a good rub to get all that flavor in the chicken. Refrigerate for a few hours.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a shallow dish, combine breadcrumbs, flour, salt, pepper, paprika and seasoning salt. Add chicken, one piece at a time, and coat well. Press the crumbs on firmly.
Line a dark, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, cutting to fit flat on the bottom. Brush with 3 tablespoons canola oil.
Place each piece of chicken on the pan, leaving a good amount of space in between. Bake for 20 minutes, flipping gently half way through. If desired, broil for 2-3 minutes to crisp up at the end.
Remove from pan to a paper towel lined plate and serve immediately.
This chicken is so moisty and juicy. Mehn, you should try this and let me know how it goes for you. And because it is baked and not fried, it is even better. You get to get all the taste from it.
Also, if you are not comfortable with chilli, leave the Sriracha out. It’ll just be buttermilk oven fried chicken.
As you enjoy, remember Jesus is the center of the Easter celebrations. Good luck!
