If you know anything about southern cooking everything is rich with flavor and spice, Things are deep fried, creamed, slathered in butter, Just look at our favorite T.V Chef Paula Deen and all of the good things she is cooking up. But what if you can take some of that southern flavor and but a spin on it ...........Let me introduce to you Southern-Oven Fried Chicken ....It's a healthier way to eating southern fried chicken and with the same great flavor as being deep fried, This chicken is coated with a panko and pecan breading with a few other spices to take it to another level.
