416 calories; 20 g fat (per serving)

Taste Test: The Mac ‘n Cheese came out dry and hard.  (Gotta love live  television!)  Try it at home to hopefully get better results.

Paula Dean FYI: It also helps to eat as a family even if it is something as small as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Also, have the kiddies help in the kitchen.  They may be more inclined to eat the broccoli if they helped in the preparation.

Comments to Dr Oz: Paula Deen Fried Chicken & Macaroni & Cheese Recipes

  1. You gave the calorie count for the orginal “fat” way but not for the new diet version. What would the count be for the macaroni and cheese.

  2. What temperature should the chicken be baked at? I never bake chicken, and would like to know the proper temperature so as not to dry out the chicken. Thanks!!

  3. I get great results baking chicken @350 for 30 minutes. The above recipe also didn’t include the info to coat the chicken with for before baking.

  4. Sally Rae says:

    This is the first recipe I have looked up from the Dr. Oz. show. I find them lacking important details. in the Mac & Cheese receipe I I had not watched the show I would have mixed the milk,egg, etc. ingredients in with the uncooked macaroni instead of mixing in a bowl separately and then stirring together. They did not mention but I would have slightly greased my baking dish. No wonder it was clumpy.

  5. The directions for both the chicken and the mac n’ cheese are totally off. A man must have written this and one who never sets a foot in a kitchen. There was no way of knowing what went together first and how long to cook it, or at what temperture.

    However, the show itself was really good!

  6. Can someone please give me directions on oven fried chicken? this has none..???

  7. found it!!!!!
    Paula Deen’s Oven-Fried Chicken
    ■Salt & Pepper
    ■3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
    ■1-1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    ■2 cloves garlic, minced
    ■1-1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
    ■1 cup self-rising flour
    ■Boneless skinned chicken
    Mix the first five ingredients together and marinate the chicken breasts for 2-8 hours. Mix the flour, more salt and pepper in a bag, then toss in the chicken breasts and shake. Lay them out on a baking sheet (looks like the kind with slots so the grease can drain). Bake for 30-50 minutes depending on the size of the chicken pieces.

  8. Thanks sam!

  9. NO! Want my Paula back !!!!

  10. Beth Durham says:

    Thanks Sam!!! Wasn’t sure about marinating the chicken. Im
    glad I saw your blog.

  11. The cooking time of the chicken depends of size of portion. You can also use thigh or legs with less time cooking.The recipe did not specify chicken breast. These could also be split lengthwise for better cookingn control. Thanks Sam for better instructions.

  12. The ingredients and Sam’s procedure are correct. What’s missing is cooking temperature. My wife attempted this recipe, and it was a disaster. First off, I thought she was making an Italian dish, the house smelled like garlic bread. Second, the Chicken failed to brown. Since she lacked the temperature setting, she started at 375, then at the 40 minute mark she jumped it to 450. Between the smell and the lack of browning, it was “Don’t cook tonight, Call Chicken Delight!”, fast food…and it tasted great!
