Fried chicken like KFC, but with less fat

You can eat whenever you like!

Tips and Crafts

We don't know what makes KFC's breadcrumb coating so delicious, but we know that this one is just as crispy and contents less fat!


  • 10 chicken fillets
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup fine corn flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Spice mix

  • 1 tablespoon salt (it will not be salty)
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder


  1. In a bowl, combine the spices.
  2. In a large ziploc bag, add 1 tablespoon of spices, 1 cup of buttermilk and chicken, then marinate for 6 to 24 hours. Store the remaining spices.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking tray with baking paper (the cooking foil will NOT work.) Add the butter to the plate and melt in the oven as it pre-heats. Once the butter is melted remove the baking tray.
  4. In a second bowl, combine flour, panko, corn flour and other spices. Add half of this mixture into a large ziploc bag.
  5. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and clean the excess marinade with paper towels.
  6. Add half the chicken to the bag and shake.
  7. Place the chicken on the baking tray. Repeat with remaining chicken.
  8. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown.
