- 1 Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a wire rack with cooking spray and place over a baking sheet.
- 2 Cut chicken in to 8 pieces (2 breasts, 2 thighs, 2 drumsticks, 2 wings).
- 3 In a shallow dish, combine buttermilk and egg, whisk well.
- 4 In a separate shallow dish combine flour, paprika and pepper, stir well.
- 5 One piece at a time, dip chicken in buttermilk mixture, then coat with flour and place on baking wrack.
- 6 Lightly spray chicken with cooking spray and bake 30 minutes, turn chicken and bake 20 minutes more until center reaches a safe temperature of 165 degrees. (Optional: If you prefer darker brown ‘crisply’ chicken, turn on the oven’s broiler for the last 2 minutes but keep an eye on the tenders so they don’t burn!)
- 1 After chicken is done, keep oven at 425 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
- 2 Arrange potato wedges on cookie sheet so none overlap and coat lightly with cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix garlic powder, pepper and parsley.
- 3 Sprinkle herb mixture over potatoes and bake for 15 minutes.
- 4 Stir and bake 15 minutes more until wedges pierce easily with a fork.
