This is one of my favorite dishes. I love fried chicken, but I don’t want the calories. Who does? This is a great alternative.

12 whole chicken wings (cleaned, rinsed, seasoned with spices below)

Flour/Cracker Mixture (can be lightly pulsed together in a food processor)

  • 1 tube of crushed saltine crackers (white or whole wheat)
  • 1.5 cups of flour (white or whole wheat)
  • salt, pepper, paprika, curry powder, Lawry’s, garlic powder

Egg Batter

Non stick cooking spray (This is important. It keeps the coating on the chicken when it is turned during cooking)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray baking pan with non stick cooking spray. Season the chicken and the flour with the same spices. Dip the chicken in the egg batter. Coat the chicken in the flour/cracker mixture. Place on baking sheet and place in oven. Turn chicken every 20 minutes for 1 hour 20 minutes.

The chicken is crispy and comes clean off of the bone. I’ve gotten props from southern friends, so I recommend you try it yourself. I’ve also dipped it in hot sauce and made buffalo wings for football parties!
