There are few things more delicious than buttermilk fried chicken...that is until you realize that just one piece of chicken could have over 500 calories. However with some creativity, you can create a similar dish at home for half the calories. Now don't get me wrong, this isn't fried chicken. However it is juicy, delicious, crispy chicken that makes a yummy dinner. Depending on your dietary preferences you can use all purpose flour (the most traditional), whole wheat flour, almond flour, or even coconut flour for the breading.
