The picture below showcases large, crispy breasts, thighs, and legs. In our family, legs is the least favorite part of the chicken. For some reason, when you cook the chicken legs this way, the legs or drumsticks become very crunchy and they actually absorb more flavor. They are unbelievable. The best part is legs are a budget saver. Drumsticks or legs are the least expensive cuts of chicken.
The first thing you're going to do is get almond flour. The best brand is Bob's Red Mill.
Also, the almond flour causes the chicken to brown into a really beautiful color. When this oven fried chicken recipe is done baking, it tastes exactly the same as pan fried chicken, without the guilt, without the mess, and without the weight gain. Fried chicken that's good for you too.

You can use any spices you wish. I'm going to give you the spices we used, and you can take it from there.
Gently place the pieces of chicken onto the flat cooking sheet.
Bake at 380 for one to one and a half hours, depending on the size and cuts of your chicken. If you bake the chicken at a higher temperature, it may burn the outside and cause the inside not to cook as fast.
If you're going to use breasts, make sure you set aside about an hour and a half. Chicken breasts take longer to brown.
It's easier to start with dark cuts of meat. Even if you don't like dark meat, you are going to fall in love with this. The dark pieces come out crunchier, and the crispy texture will make a convert out of breast and wing lovers.
Then as you get used to it, you can work with larger pieces of chicken, and weigh which one works better for you.
