Spicy Oven Fried Chicken for Two

I have always love a Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Breast. While I wasn’t trying to duplicate it, I wanted some of that taste but with little fuss. Well it’s very close especially for a oven fried chicken.

As usual, I couldn’t find anything that I really wanted to do by Googling.  I wanted oven for two reason. First I’m too busy right now to pay attention to frying nor to clean up after. Second, I’m on a low fat health kick and this has almost zero.  Put it on a whole wheat bun with some low fat mayo and pat yourself on the back for how good you’re being.
