…from Perspectives & The Peanut Institute
How you doin’? Here’s a healthy recipe from The Peanut Institute. Yes, there is a Peanut Institute, and they even have their own marching band—only kidding.
The Peanut Institute always brings new recipes to the table, and this is one that caught my attention using peanut flour. In work that Perspectives completed at Yale University several years ago for The National Peanut Board, we discovered that peanut flour is a good one-to-one replacement for all-purpose flour in many applications—here is one.
This nutty oven-baked peanut chicken is crunchy and crispy with a light golden crust that belies the fact that it is not deep fried. In fact, this far healthier oven “fried” chicken is quite low in fat—but is chockfull of wonderful nutty fried chicken flavor.
Peanut flour is available in several retail grocery chains (Walmart, Albertson’s and Sprouts) and Amazon as well. Peanut flour is also available for purchase online at The American Peanut Shellers Association.

Quip of the Day: In life it is important to know when to stop arguing with people and simply let them be wrong.
