Ditch the fryer and bake these deliciously crispy unfried chicken recipes instead!
Fried chicken is the ultimate comfort food! Its decadent crackle of crispy double-dredged skin is a fan-favorite for most chicken lovers – especially when every bite packs in tender, juicy flavor.
Unfortunately, traditional recipes use gluten-laden flours and toxic frying oils that can wreck your health. But, that doesn’t mean you have to kiss “breaded” chicken goodbye forever. Instead, learn how to “un-fry” chicken by nixing the grains and gluten and swapping the fryer for an oven.
