Trisha Yearwood has done the seemingly impossible. In her easy recipe for baked-not-fried chicken, this week's Most Popular Pin of the Week, she's turned lean chicken breasts into the crispy, crunchy, golden chicken pieces you'd expect after giving them a dip in the deep fryer — but without that oil bath. She dredges the chicken in tangy buttermilk, then coats it in a blanket of cheesy breadcrumbs before baking, to deliver the texture and flavor you know and love, in a lighter way.
