    Thanks for sharing this recipe! I am going to try this to pack for a picnic lunch this summer. (I'm so tired of the same old sandwiches.)

    Thank you again!

    I'm questioning your points on this recipe. How much of the milk/egg whites/flour do you actually use?

    chicken breast is 1 pt per oz
    3 egg whites are 1 pt (how many in 1 cup 8 or 9)
    2 cups of f/f milk is 4 pts
    3 cups of flour is 27 pts.

    That comes to 8 pts per 4 servings without any chicken.

    If you read what I wrote on the bottom of the recipe....I said to check the points yourself.
    Realizing of course that you will have egg, milk and flour all left over. Not all of it gets used when you make fried chicken. There has to been a larger amount to dip the chicken into it. The 1.5 for the chicken was for 1/4 of a chicken which could very well be the right amount. A drumstick with a wing would'nt be as much meat as a breast. I went by the package information and points slider.

    Hey all of your Fried Chicken Lovers

    Tried this last night...Excellent, but I think I could have done some scaling down to use far less flour and eggbeaters, but still the same amount of spices to zest up the flour coating.

    I added some homemade Emeril zing, and turned the chicken twice..Total cooking time about 50 min at 375. Chicken was excellent. Hmmm Tastes Like Chicken!

    Highly recommended - will do this one again.

    Hi Bill -

    I read your idea about adding "Emeril-zing to the almost fried chicken recipe. You said it was homemade. Could I possibly persuade you to post the recipe for that homemade seasoning? I would be most appreciative. Thanks -

    Here is the recipe for Bayou Blast:

    Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast):

    2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
    2 tablespoons salt
    2 tablespoons garlic powder
    1 tablespoon black pepper
    1 tablespoon onion powder
    1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
    1 tablespoon dried oregano
    1 tablespoon dried thyme

    Combine all ingredients thoroughly.

    Makes 2/3 cup

    No Worries...Very easy and no points
    [img]redface.gif[/img] I do like that spice!

    I had the leftover piece for lunch today, and it was great cold...Almost Fried Chicken was great. Going to try fish for almost fried fish. Should be just as good!

    Hey, Bill, I cooked chicken breasts tonight using the recipe you gave for Emerils Bayou Blast. I just dipped in 1% milk (didn't use egg white) and floured in very little flour and used the spices. I sprayed the chicken and the pan with Krogers butter spray. I figured only about 4 pts for each piece. My husband loved it! Thanks, I'm a Emeril fan; saw him in Orlando in January and ate at one of his restaurants--before I started WWs. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    My son got a full ride track scholarship in New Orleans, and used to work at Brennans in the Quarter. He met Emeril, and thought he was a really cool dude! I liked him on the Food Channel...quite the character.

    In reference to the previous posts about Almost Fried Chicken point values. I couldn't begin to understand why so much flour was used. I didn't use egg whites, I used egg beaters, and had a ton of flour and eggbeaters left over that got tossed. The points come, of course, from the amount of egg or flour that gets stuck to the chicken, which really wasn't much in the meal I fixed. I enjoyed it. I did alaskan cod another time, and didn't care much for my faux fish without chips

    Here is the recipe for Almost Fried Chicken. I have pasted in because the other is gone?

    Almost Fried Chicken

    1 cut up chicken (skinned)
    1 cup of egg whites or Egg Beaters
    2 cups of Nonfat Milk
    3 cups of flour (approx.)
    1 Tbsp Black Pepper
    1 Tbsp of Seasoning Salt
    1 Tbsp of Dried Oregano Flakes
    Pam Spray

    Preheat oven to 375

    Skin and wash chicken, pat dry and set aside. Whip egg whites and milk together in a large bowl and set aside. Mix flour, seasoning salt, pepper and oregano flakes together in another large bowl.

    Spray Pam on a cookie sheet.
    Dip chicken in egg mix and then in flour mix. Make sure it's thoroughly coated. Put chicken on the cookie sheet making sure they are not touching. Spray Pam on chicken pieces so that the flour looks completely moist. Cook chicken for approx. 20 minutes, turn chicken over and spray again with Pam. Continue doing this until chicken is cooked through.

    :eek: Sorry you guys, I took it off but it seems Bill put it back up.
    I got tired of the griping about, why did you use so much of this, that and the other!
    We all love fried chicken so I was posting the recipe from memory (lost some weight there too). I figured everyone could "basically" re-do the amounts of some of the ingrediants but get the general idea of how to make the chicken. Call it chocolate deprivation, TOM, whatever, but the last time I looked through this post, it griped me so much, I took it off.

    Chris - Thank you for your efforts to post this recipe.
    I'm going to try it.
    I agree, you never said do it your way. We can all figure out points, etc. ourselves. Maybe that ole saying is really true "too many cooks spoil the broth! Thank you again!

    Bill - Thanks for the spice recipe too.

    Hi I made the chicken the other night. It was great!! I cut the amount of dipping ingredients in half and put the flour and spices in a bag to toss the chicken with. Everyone in the family loved it and I especially enjoyed it cause it tasted like my mom's fried chicken from when I was a kid. I haven't been able to eat real fried chicken for some time cause all the fat makes me sick. Thanks for a great recipe.
