Mexican Fried Chicken

Great variety and tastes great too.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a bowl combine sour cream, milk, chili peppers, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, cumin, salt, and black pepper
  2. Cut chicken breasts in half. Place chicken pieces in a bag and set in a shallow dish.
  3. Pour sour cream mixture over chicken, seal bag. Refrigerate overnight, turn bag occasionally.
  4. Place flour in a shallow dish.
  5. Remove chicken from sour cream mixture shaking off excess. Discard remaining sour cream mixture. Add chicken pieces to flour mixture, a few at a time, turning to coat.
  6. Add oil to a 12" inch heavy skillet to a depth of 1/4 to 1/2". Heat over medium high heat until hot, about 350° F (175° C). Reduce heat.
  7. Carefully add chicken to the skillet. Cook uncovered, over medium heat about 40 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170° F (75° C) for breast)), turning occasionally to brown evenly.
  8. Drain on paper towel.

The recipe looks good but clearly they did not include the oil they fried it in in their nutrition or it would be much higher in calories and also more than 1.8g of fat. will have to try it baked instead.

How can this be only 4 WW points when the chicken is FRIED? I'll spray the pieces with PAM. and bake mine in the oven when I try his recipe.

The number of carb's for one serving is to high for the Kimkins diet. The Flour is a big no no, along with the sour cream.
