Un-Fried Chicken

light vegetable oil cooking spray 6 drumsticks, skin removed
3 whole chicken breasts, halved and skin removed
3 1/2 cups ice water
1 cup plain nonfat yogurt

1 cup dried Italian bread crumbs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Creole seasoning
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Dash cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Coat a baking sheet with 3 sprays of the vegetable oil. Put the
chicken in a large bowl with the ice water. Put the yogurt into
a medium bowl. Set both bowls aside. Toss all the breading
ingredients into a large, tightly-sealing plastic bag. Seal and
shake well to mix. Remove 2 pieces of chicken from the ice water.
Roll each piece in the yogurt. Put the chicken into the plastic
bag, reseal, and shake to coat thoroughly. Transfer the breaded
chicken to the prepared baking sheet. Repeat the process until
all 12 pieces are breaded. Spray the chicken lightly with the
vegetable oil.

Place the baking sheet on the bottom shelf of the oven and bake
for 1 hour, turning the pieces every 20 minutes to allow even

Serve hot or at room temperature.

Notes: The secret to the success of this recipe is to make sure
that both the chicken and the yogurt are very cold (hence, soaking
the chicken in the ice water). The preliminary soaking will help
the breading adhere and produce a crisp coating much like that of
fried chicken. If you're serving the chicken on a platter rather
than on individual dinner plates, it looks smashing on a bed of
flowering kale.
