Healthy and extra crispy, these juicy chicken thighs are perfect for an easy weeknight meal, whether part of a 1-2-3 Eat! menu or just paired with an easy steamed veggie (you don’t even need a starch!).  If you love fried chicken but love your body more, this is the recipe for you.  This healthy Extra Crispy Baked Chicken recipe uses our whole grain version of all purpose baking mix (or, in other words, our healthy version of Bisquick®) for the breading, which comes in handy in a lot of ways.  Feel free to make extra for future use.  (I keep it in the freezer for longest life.)
