Your weekend dinner is sorted with Rachael Finch’s healthy fried chicken

We all have a soft spot for fried chicken; nuggets, drumsticks – you name it. But all that oil can cause havoc, not only for our insides, but also our waistline and skin (hello large pores, acne and oily T-zone).

But this healthy version is packed with protein, veg and healthy fats, and will satisfy all those fried-cravings. Impress the guests for a weekend feast, or whip it up for a midnight dinner – the possibilities are endless. The only thing we can guarantee is that there won’t be any leftovers for you to take for lunch the next day.
