Directions
1.
Lightly coat a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Skin chicken. Arrange chicken in prepared baking pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 25 minutes.
2.
Meanwhile, for sauce, in a medium saucepan cook garlic in hot oil over medium heat for 30 seconds. Stir in barbecue sauce, catsup, juice, brown sugar, molasses, and, if desired, hot pepper sauce; heat through.
3.
Carefully brush chicken with sauce. Turn chicken and brush with additional sauce. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink (180 degree F). Reheat any remaining sauce; drizzle some of the sauce over chicken; pass remaining sauce. Makes 8 servings.

Oven-Fried Chicken

Great news - crunchy, flavorful fried chicken can be healthy. We marinate skinless chicken in buttermilk to keep it juicy. A light coating of flour, sesame seeds and spices, misted with olive oil, forms an appealing crust during baking. And with only 7 grams of fat per serving rather than the 20 in typical fried chicken - that is good news.
