Nothing is better than crispy fried chicken. Salty, savoury and so delicious that everyone fights for the last piece.
Fried chicken is so darn good… well, taste wise, not health wise. Until now!
My healthier version of this comfort food favourite is baked, not fried, so you get all the deliciousness for less fat and fewer calories. You gotta try this healthier fried chicken!

Traditional fried chicken uses lots of white flour. To make these baked chicken thighs gluten-free and have some of the crunch and crispiness of fried versions that use corn flakes or panko bread crumbs, I used TERRA Chips. These aren’t your average chips; they’re a tasty multi-coloured blend of root vegetables such as taro, sweet potato, yuca, batata and parsnip.
You’re probably wondering… cooking with chips? What’s that all about?
As long as you choose healthier chips that are free of trans fats for your recipes, you’ll get some nutritional benefits along with amazing flavour and texture. I’m not just talking about entrees here.
