The easiest and crunchiest fried chicken recipe
Nobody likes soggy fried chicken… A few months back I released a recipe for a super crunchy ‘fried’ chicken that skipped the deep-fryer. Even though it’s oven-baked the thick cornflakes crust gives you the same satisfying crunch that you love from a good fried chicken, but then just a little bit healthier.
Check out the recipe for the incredibly tender oven-baked chicken with an ear-popping crunch, here. At least just as delightful as your Colonel’s chicken but then finger-licking better!
About one small bowl of dip. Enough for 4 servings.
Ingredients for the blue cheese dip
- 1 clove garlic
- 3 sprigs parsley

How to make blue cheese dipping sauce for fried chicken
Finely chop the garlic, parsley, and chives.
In a bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, yogurt, dijon mustard, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce.
Crumble the blue cheese into the bowl, add your chopped garlic and herbs. Season with salt and pepper, and give it a good stir.
