This Recipe Is The Closest You Can Get To Fried Chicken Without Deep Frying

There’s nothing better than some really good fried chicken. Unfortunately, eating deep fried chicken all the time isn’t the best thing for our waistlines and heart health.  Luckily, you can still make a really tasty “fried” chicken meal with your oven instead of the deep fryer.

  • 3 1/2 lbs. fresh chicken drumsticks
  • 2 tbsp. salted Cajun seasoning

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1  tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 eggs
  • Two 5-ounce bags seasoned croutons, crushed
