In this video, Chef John accomplishes the impossible: creating delicious, crispy Southern fried chicken using boneless, skinless chicken breasts. And because there’s no skin, and the coating is thin, this fried chicken is lighter and healthier than the skin-on kind. Check out the recipe for Chef John's Honey-Brined Fried Chicken Breasts. Yes, it’s a modern day fried-chicken miracle! The secret is the honey brine, which helps prevent the chicken from drying out.
