Buttermilk Ranch Fried Chicken

June 11, 2011

This buttermilk ranch “fried” chicken will be sure to satisfy your craving for fried chicken without the fat.   The buttermilk keeps it nice and moist while the Panko crumbs* gives it that crispy coating that we all love.

12  oz. boneless, skinless chicken tenders (about 6) or 12 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into strips

2/3 cup low-fat (1% milkfat) buttermilk

1 tsp. pepper

1 tsp. dried parsley flakes

Put above ingredients in a zip-lock bag and marinate at least 3 hours or overnight.

1/3 cup original Fiber One bran cereal

1 packet Ranch Salad Dressing and Seasoning mix

1/3 cup Panko Japanese-style bread crumbs  *

Butter flavor non-stick cooking spray

Grind the Fiber One cereal in a food processor or blender until it is a breadcrumb-like consistency.  Mix these breadcrumbs with the dry ranch dressing and the Panko breadcrumbs.

Spray a baking sheet with butter flavored non-stick cooking spray.

Remove each individual piece of chicken from the buttermilk mixture and dip it into the crumb mixture.  Make sure to coat each piece throughly.  Lay each coated piece on the baking sheet.

Give chicken pieces a quick once over spray with the butter flavored spray.

Bake for about 10 – 12 minutes on each side, or until edges are crispy.

* Panko Japanese bread crumbs are found in the Oriental section of most grocery stores.
