This recipe is surprisingly similar to what you would get in the kitchen somewhere in the south. It is as crunchy and flavorful as "regular" fried chicken without the poor health implications. This no-fry fried chicken has all the comfort as something straight out of vat of oil even though it is baked.
6 skinless, bone-in chicken thighs
1 cup Rice Krispies
2 cups plain bagel chips crushed
3/4 teaspoons paprika
1/2 cup plain fat free Greek yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1 bunch scallions
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
dash of hot sauce
Grind your bagel chips and Krispies in a food processor along with your salt and pepper(s), paprika and garlic powder. Throw the crumbs into a large Ziploc bag and add 3 teaspoons of olive oil. Mix your yogurt, mustard and hot sauce in a small bowl. Run your chicken pieces through the mixture and them to your crumby Ziploc bag. Shake 'till all pieces are coated well with the crumbs.
You may have to skin your chick which is gross but makes this dish so much less fatterning.
Spray a cooking rack (preferably a drip tray with slats that comes as a two piece kitchen staple) with vegetable spray and lay your pieces on it. Add some of the scallions (whole) and spray with more vegetable spray.
*If you don't have a "two piece kitchen staple", I have no idea what it is called, it won't be the worst to put it on a foil lined cookie sheet though the bottoms may not come out as crunchy. Bake 35 minutes.
