Fried Chicken:

  • 1 lb chicken wings
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • Pam Butter Flavored Non-Fat, Nonstick Cooking Spray
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp granulated onion powder
  • 3 oz buttermilk
  • ½ cup cornflake crumbs crushed finely


  • 1 lb ground beef or any other ground meat
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 8 oz tomato sauce
  • 15 oz diced tomatoes in juice
  • 3/4 cup dried lentils
  • 1 medium-sized onion chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/3 cup hot salsa
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper chopped
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp chili powder


  • Begin preparing your dish by browning the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat. After browning, drain the grease.
  • Transfer the meat into a large pot and add the remaining ingredients.
  • Mix the contents of the pot well then cover and cook them over medium heat for one hour.
  • After some time, lower the heat and cook the pot's contents for at least one more hour.
  • While the chili cooks, start preparing your chicken by preheating your oven to 365 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Coat a baking dish with oil or cooking spray. After that, combine the flour, salt, black pepper, onion powder, and cayenne pepper together in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Place the buttermilk and corn flakes crumbs in two separate shallow bowls.
  • Roll the chicken in the flour mixture, making sure to evenly coat each side.
  • Next, dip the chicken in the buttermilk mixture then in the corn flakes crumbs mixture.
  • Place the coated chicken breasts inside the baking dish then spray them with non-stick cooking oil. Alternatively, you can drench them in oil instead.
  • Bake the chicken in the oven for about about 25 to 30 minutes until it is tender and no longer pink. No need to flip it as it bakes.
  • Once your chicken s done cooking, serve it with the chili and feel free to garnish with cheese. Enjoy!
