Oven Fried Chicken - the Chobani way!

Tonight, in keeping with our theme of 'Playing with your Cho'...I quickly changed my menu and whipped up some Oven Fried Chicken, getting the recipe from Chobani's website.  If you have never made this recipe, I urge you to try it soon.  First, it went together very quickly and simply...marinate the chicken in a yogurt-based marinade for 30 minutes while the oven pre-heats and while you make the coating.  Shake the pieces one at a time in the coating and put them on a prepared rack and into the oven it goes!  Here is how it looks:
The aroma is mouth-watering...but nothing compared to how this chicken tastes.  Even my 17 year-old picky eater said he'd definitely enjoy having it again...and he's a huge fried chicken fan.

Don't panic when you see the mess under the baking rack - it's all captured on the clean up is pretty quick, too!

Oven Fried Chicken - 10pp for two pieces, 3/4 cup mashed potatoes - 4pp, and veggies - 0pp!  So worth the 14points.  We want a 'do over' soon!!

I have yet to assemble dessert...check back later ;0)

  1. YUM! I would've never thought to use my Chobani on "fried chicken". it looks and sounds amazing! I NEED to try it!

    Oh, did you know you can save on points+ with mock mashed potatoes using cauliflower - they taste just like the real deal in my opinion :)

  2. Hi Danica! I would never have thought, either - but after checking out the recipes on Chobani's site...this one just called my name! We love it! We did try the "faux-tatoes", and 2 of the 3 of us liked them...but the picky teen prefers the real thing!

  3. we had this tonight. It was really good. Even Kyle ate it with red hot on it.

  4. If Kyle likes his chicken spicy - you have to try the other oven fried chicken recipe on this site. It has a real kick! Glad you enjoyed it.
