In the Pantry Challenge video series, Lauren Braun Costello, a chef, author and food stylist, shows busy moms how to make tasty, healthy meals using ingredients they already have in their pantry, solving their unique cooking challenges.
In this video, Lauren shows Jennifer C., a busy mother of two and P.R. professional, how to make her oven-fried chicken recipe -- a healthy dinner that the whole family (including her husband and three-year-old son) will enjoy. Rather than frying chicken breasts in a pan of oil, Lauren replicates the flavor and texture of regular fried chicken by marinating chicken breasts in low-fat buttermilk, and then coating the breasts in a cornmeal and spice mixture. The chicken cutlets are given a golden, crunchy crust by being baked in the oven with just a little bit of oil painted on with a pastry brush.
