Lover of good food and sharer of good recipes. Continuing attempts to document family favorites, while focusing on healthier versions.

Love Fried Chicken but...

... don' t love the high calories and high sodium content of the usual recipe? This is a intensely flavored, but not spicy, version that misses none of the flavor of your favorite, but frankly unhealthy, southern fried chicken.

(Want spicy or other flavorings? See alternate ideas after the recipe.)
