Better Than Fried Chicken
I have a few go-to meals that I make once a month not only because they are quick and easy but also because they’re incredibly healthy and delicious. This is definitely one of those dishes. The secret to this moist chicken is the mayonnaise panko batter that gets crispy from a quick oven bake while retaining all of the meat’s flavorful juices. You can serve this versatile chicken with your favorite side dish or just slice it up and toss it on a dinner salad for an extra healthy meal. For a spicy twist, add a tablespoon or two of buffalo sauce to the batter and top with some crumbled blue cheese.
Suggested Wine Pairings
This light and lemony chicken needs a light to medium-bodied wine that won’t overpower it. If you prefer red wines, look for a light-bodied, fruit-forward wine to balance the tangy flavors, like a Beaujolais or Pinot Noir. If you prefer white wine, try an acidic, aromatic wine like a Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc or a juicy rosé.
