    If you haven't tried breading foods in rice flour, prepare to be amazed. The gluten-free ingredient has a lighter texture than wheat flour, and dredging chicken drumsticks, thighs and breasts in it results in a supercrispy crust. This recipe also incorporates an additional coating of corn-cereal flakes and cracker crumbs, so the crunch factor is off the charts.

    Brining (aka soaking meat in cold, salted water prior to cooking) is a technique you can use before roasting, grilling or other methods -- but it's especially helpful when oven-frying chicken breasts, which can dry out easily. After the brine, you dip the chicken in buttermilk and seasoned bread crumbs, then cook it on a sheet you've preheated, so it sizzles when it makes contact. The result: deeply flavored meat that's also superjuicy.
