Serves: 12


  • 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1⁄4 cup butter
  • Blue cheese dressing, for serving

  • Heat oven to 450°F. Line a large rimmed sheet pan with foil; place a large rectangular wire rack on top; spray both with cooking spray.
  • In large resealable plastic bag, mix flour, chili powder, cumin and salt. Add chicken; seal bag and toss until chicken is evenly coated. Place chicken pieces in a single layer on rack; discard flour mixture.
