This recipe is amazing. If you love the people you cook for, you will make this for them. This is the best oven fried chicken I've remembered having that is also supposed to be healthy. And the mashed potatoes are a great way to sneak in a veggie! Trust me, make this and if you have leftover chicken, it is great as chicken salad!

Oven Fried Chicken & Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients for Chicken 6 P+:

First you are going to brine your chicken

For Brine:
Water to cover Chicken in ziploc bag
1/4 cup Kosher Salt
1 t Sugar

4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, pounded to same thickness and brined for 20 minutes
1 Egg
1/3 cup Flour
Salt & Pepper
Other Seasonings to Taste

Whisk one egg with 1 T water. Dip rinsed and dried chicken breasts into egg wash before dredging in flour salt and pepper (and other seasonings to taste).

Lay chicken breasts on cooling rack for 10 minutes. (This is KEY)

Heat oil in cast iron skillet and pre-heat oven to 350. Once oil is hot, cook chicken until browned on both sides and no longer trying to stick to the pan (and if it gets a little blackened, that is delicious also!).

Stick into oven and let it finish cooking, 10-15 minutes.

Mashed Potatoes 2 P+:
2 oz potato per person
Equal amount of cauliflower as potato
Skim Milk
Land o Lakes Butter

Dice potato and boil over high until soft. While the potatoes cook, cut cauliflower into florets and cook until soft. Mix potatoes and cauliflower with milk, butter and S&P until it reaches the desired creaminess.

The gravy is just a mixture of cornstarch, chicken stock and better than bullion.
