Winner, winner, chicken dinner

Now that the FabFatties cruise is over and gone (I miss you guys very much!) I'm trying to get back into my routine. So I'm back to figuring out what's for dinner, and that includes figuring out what kind of chicken to cook for dinner. Last night was Oven Crisp Chicken (adapted from recipe on pg. 68 from 365 Ways To Cook Chicken), and oh, this was a good one.

Oven Crisp Chicken

1 cup low fat sour cream
2 T fresh lemon juice
2 T Worcestershire sauce
1/2 t regular paprika
1/2 t hot paprika
1/4 t celery seed
1/2 t salt
1 t garlic powder
1/2 t freshly ground black pepper
1 cup breadcrumbs (recipe calls for stuffing mix that you pulverize. I used Italian breadcrumbs)
1 chicken, cut up
olive oil cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350.

In a bowl mix together the sour cream, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, celery seed, salt, garlic powder and pepper.

Pour breadcrumbs into a dish (I poured onto waxed paper because it's easy and doesn't mess up another dish).

Dip the chicken pieces in the sour cream mixture and roll in the breadcrumbs.

Place coated pieces in a pan that you lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Spritz top with olive oil spray (the recipe calls for melted butter) and bake for 1 hour.

Serve with veggie of your choice, salad, whatever is in the freezer...

The review: This chicken was really moist on the inside and lightly crispy on the outside. I'll be making this one again.


  1. I love your recipes! I'm always looking for different ways to make chicken. Thanks for sharing!

  2. this looks really good! I'll need to work out points values. ;)

  3. I've been on a chicken kick lately. I like this recipe and it's healthy! Looks good.

  4. Love the final product. I call it "oven fried chicken" and really it's as good as fried.
