Potluck Fried Chicken Recipe

Publisher Photo
This Sunday dinner staple is first fried and then baked to a crispy golden brown. Well-seasoned with oregano and sage, this classic is sure to satisfy diners at church potlucks or late-summer picnics, too. I love fixing it for family and friends. —Donna Kuhaupt, Slinger, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 6, 2014

Just found this recipe - it looks delicious! I like the idea of using the boneless skinless strips. @safetysu - where do you see the nutrition information? Fried foods are going to have more calories, but you can eliminate some of it by modifying the recipe - don't use the skin, bake on top of rack, etc.

I would bake this on a rack after frying as the bottom of the chicken got a little soggy from the grease. Otherwise, it was awesome! We didn't mind the oregano and sage so I kept the recipe the same.

My family would have liked this better if it didn't have the sage. I did like the crispy texture of the chicken.

MY REVIEW

Would just like to ask why there are so many calories for one serving when people want to lose weight they can't have any of this.
