How to Make Fried Chicken Healthier

How to Make Fried Chicken Healthier

Make a healthier version of a crispy “Bucket o’ Chicken” at home.

If you love fried chicken, you're not alone. (You can buy fried chicken by the bucket at several popular fast-food chains.) The beauty of fried chicken is that it’s cheap and delicious. The not so beautiful side is that just two pieces of extra-crispy Kentucky Fried Chicken comes in at around 490 calories. And that doesn’t include those irresistible mashed potatoes and gravy either, which will add another 120 calories. Is it possible to make fried chicken healthier at home?
