La La Land: Oven "Fried" Chicken

La La Land: Nominated for Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Actor, and 11 more

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know by now that La La Land got 14 nominations, tying with Titanic for most Oscar nods. Hollywood hunk Ryan Gosling plays a musician who wants to open up a jazz club named "Chicken on a Stick," that serves—you guess it—fried chicken. (If only Ryan Gosling actually opened a jazz club that served fried chicken. *Sigh*)

This healthier, oven-baked "fried" chicken is just as tasty as the classic fried chicken we all know and love, but way less oily.
