Roasted Potato Wedges

Oven-Fried Chicken

  1. Preheat the oven to 425˚F. Lightly spray a large wire rack with cooking spray. Place the rack on a large baking sheet.
  2. In a shallow dish, whisk together the buttermilk and egg.
  3. In a separate shallow dish, stir together the flour, paprika, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
  4. Set the dishes and baking sheet in a row, assembly-line fashion. Dip each chicken piece in the buttermilk mixture, then in the flour, turning to coat at each step and gently shaking off any excess. Transfer to the wire rack on the baking sheet.
  5. Lightly coat the chicken pieces with cooking spray. Bake for 30 minutes. Turn over the chicken. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center. (Be sure all pieces register 165˚F on an instant-read thermometer.)

Roasted Potato Wedges

  1. While the chicken is baking, lightly spray a second large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Arrange the potato wedges on the baking sheet in a single layer. Lightly spray with cooking spray.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and the parsley. Sprinkle over the potatoes.
  4. Once the chicken has baked for 20 minutes, place the baking sheet with the potatoes in the oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn over the potatoes. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the wedges pierce easily with a fork.

Tip: Buying a whole chicken and cutting it into pieces is less costly than buying separate chicken parts.

Tip: A 4-pound whole chicken provides about 1 pound of breast meat, which is a healthy portion for serving four people. Enjoy the remaining chicken pieces during the week.
