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


  1. Begin preparing your dish by browning the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat. After browning, drain the grease.

  2. Transfer the meat into a large pot and add the remaining ingredients.

  3. Mix the contents of the pot well then cover and cook them over medium heat for one hour.

  4. After some time, lower the heat and cook the pot's contents for at least one more hour.

  5. While the chili cooks, start preparing your chicken by preheating your oven to 365 degrees Fahrenheit.

  6. 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.

  7. Place the buttermilk and corn flakes crumbs in two separate shallow bowls.

  8. Roll the chicken in the flour mixture, making sure to evenly coat each side.

  9. Next, dip the chicken in the buttermilk mixture then in the corn flakes crumbs mixture.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Once your chicken s done cooking, serve it with the chili and feel free to garnish with cheese. Enjoy!
