Whether you take it along on a picnic or serve it at home for a family supper, this updated "fried" chicken is a crowd pleaser. Marinating the chicken in buttermilk keeps it juicy, and the light coating of flour, sesame seeds and spices, misted with olive oil, forms an appealing crust during baking.

Make Ahead Tip: The chicken can be marinated for up to 8 hours.
1/2 cup  buttermilk
1 tablespoon  Dijon mustard
2 cloves  garlic, minced
1 teaspoon  hot sauce
2 1/2-3 pounds  chicken legs, skin removed, trimmed and cut into thighs and drumsticks
1/2 cup  whole-wheat flour
2 tablespoons  sesame seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons  paprika
1 teaspoon  dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon  baking powder
1/8 teaspoon  salt, or to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste
olive oil cooking spray
Picnic Oven-Fried Chicken Recipe at
Whisk buttermilk, mustard, garlic and hot sauce in a shallow glass dish until well blended. Add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1/2 hour or for up to 8 hours.

Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Set a wire rack on the baking sheet and coat it with cooking spray.

Whisk flour, sesame seeds, paprika, thyme, baking powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Place the flour mixture in a paper bag or large sealable plastic bag. Shaking off excess marinade, place one or two pieces of chicken at a time in the bag and shake to coat. Shake off excess flour and place chicken on the prepared rack. (Discard any leftover flour mixture and marinade). Spray chicken pieces with cooking spray.

Bake the chicken until golden brown and no longer pink in the center, 40 to 50 minutes.
