Not so Fried, Fried Chicken

For a light alternative to fried chicken try this fluffy, crunchy and mouthwateringly moist breaded chicken recipe. The panko crust imitates the crunchiness of fried chicken and the sour cream ensures the moistness without the fat and grease.  You can spruce this up and serve it anywhich way but i have just included my basic recipe.

Ingredients List:

  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of Panko Crumbs
  • 1  1/2tbsp of Sriracha
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 2 boneless chicken breast

There are so many alternatives to this recipe, it’s really a matter of what you like and what you have handy in your fridge. I often use light sour cream or plain yogurt as an even healthy alternative but you can easily substitute those options with mayo. As i mentioned in the photo blog, you can make this recipe without the fire of sriracha and it will be just as delicious. The panko crumbs are more or less flavourless but you could mix them with herbs, pepper, salt anything really before coating your chicken.

I hope that you are enjoying this warm and sunny day.

    I like the addition of Sriracha because we like the “heat” in our food. Recently been getting into Panko breadcrumbs while baking or frying meat and poultry…love how they stay crunchy even when patted onto something that has been dipped in egg and or milk.
