Baked KFC Chicken

Find it on Pinterest

Cooks Note: I am very skeptical of recipes that say they taste like a restaurant, especially when it says it is just as good AND lower in fat and calories. Reading this Facebook post that my friend Robyn shared, I am thinking, I highly doubt that! I decided to give it a try because it was 4 pm and I had not even thought about dinner. Let me tell you, holy KFC! This tastes just like the Colonel's original recipe without the fat and the skin. I love this, I will make it again and again and I think you should too. Enjoy!


4 Chicken Breasts or 10-12 chicken strips
1 tsp salt
2 T Season Salt
1 1/2 tsp black pepper
2 cups flour
4 tsp paprika
1/2 stick butter


1Place chicken breasts or strips in a milk bath for 20-30 min
2. Mix together Salt, pepper, seasoning salt, paprika and flour in a large ziplock bag or bowl
