Very exciting post... healthy KFC!

No, its not a typo bloggers! I have recently discovered a recipe for chicken that tastes like KFC only its baked in the oven not fried.

This discovery stemmed from a kindy I was working in last week, the teachers had been watching 'The foodtruck' on tv one and apparently he made his own version of KFC. One of them really wanted to try it so they googled a recipe and viola! here is is. I made it twice last week it was so good, my flatmates couldn't believe how good it is (and neither could I) you really just have to have a go for yourself!

Homemade 'healthy' KFC:

    4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts or chicken pieces with bones  
    1 Tbsp salt  
    1 cup flour  
    1 tbsp. pepper  
    2 tbsp. paprika 
    1/2 tsp. garlic salt  
    1 1/2 tsp. ground mustard  
    1 1/2 tsp. ground thyme  
    1 1/2 tsp. basil 1/2 tsp. oregano  
    1/2 Tbsp. ground ginger

    (Wait... thats only 7 secret herbs and spices, hmmmm)
