Baked Crispy Potato Chicken

Written by COA Nutrition Team On December 31, 2021

This recipe is a healthier version of “fried” chicken, without losing the crispiness and flavor that we all love!

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into chunks
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup dry instant mashed potato flakes

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place chicken pieces, buttermilk, bay leaves, garlic, salt, and black pepper into a large resealable plastic bag and knead bag several times to mix buttermilk and seasonings with chicken. Squeeze air from the bag, seal, and refrigerate at least 2 hours (up to overnight) to marinate.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place a wire cooking rack into a roasting pan.
  3. Drain marinade from bag and discard bay leaves. Mix Parmesan cheese, flour, garlic powder and paprika in a small bowl. Add Parmesan cheese mixture to chicken in the bag, close the bag, and shake to thoroughly coat chicken pieces with the mixture.
  4. Whisk egg and water in a shallow bowl. Place potato flakes into a separate shallow bowl. Dip floured chicken pieces in egg mixture; roll pieces in potato flakes to thoroughly coat. Arrange the chicken pieces on wire rack.
  5. Bake chicken for 15 minutes and turn pieces over on rack; continue baking until chicken is no longer pink inside and coating is browned and crisp, 15 to 20 more minutes.
  6. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, here is our Super Healthy Dipping Sauce for inspiration.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Yes, you should get an air fryer!

There are a lot of questions popping out when it comes to this latest kitchen craze. Is it worth buying an air fryer? Here are some reasons why we think so: • Easy to clean • Easy to use • Safe to use • Healthier meals • Doesn’t take up much space • Faster Than Oven Cooking An air fryer is an incredibly easy way to cook just about anything. You place the food in a fryer-style basket and hot air rapidly circulates all around the food, making the food crisp – much like deep-frying, but without the oil. You can cook anything you’d make in the oven. So, yes, DO IT!
