Oven-Fried Chicken

Try this new twist on an old, traditional recipe. With a quick or overnight marinade, this oven-fried chicken is simple and flavorful.


1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp. kosher salt, divided
1 tsp. ground black pepper, divided
4 chicken legs, skin removed
4 chicken thighs, skin removed
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. sweet paprika
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. baking powder


  1. In large bowl, whisk together yogurt, mustard, garlic, 2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Add chicken pieces; turn to coat in marinade. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 min. or up to 12 hrs.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place a wire rack on top of baking sheet and lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In large plastic bag, combine flour, paprika, thyme, baking powder and remaining 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Remove chicken from marinade; shake off excess and add a few pieces at a time to flour mixture. Shake to coat, shaking off excess flour.
  4. Place chicken on prepared rack. Lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Bake 50 to 60 min. until golden brown and internal temperature reaches 160°F.
