I know what you did last weekend. You splurged on a big, juicy, extra-crispy piece of fried chicken – or maybe two – at that family picnic. And then you lamented the fact that you can’t eat it more often.
Fried chicken is one of our best-loved comfort foods, but that incredibly greasy stuff remains off-limits if you’re trying to keep a tight rein on your weight. Unless, of course, you fry out the calories and fat in a flash. My recipe for chicken carnitas is so deceitfully delicious – full of flavor with a crisp outer crust – no one will suspect that it is low in calories.
Compared to classic carnitas (which traditionally are made with pork), which can pack 1,180 calories and 62 grams of fat a serving, these babies come in at just 314 calories with 14 grams of fat. I don’t know about you, but I am impressed.
