cooking spray
6 chicken drumsticks, skin removed
3 whole chicken breasts, halved with skin removed
3-1/2 c. ice water
1 c. plain nonfat yogurt

1 c. dried Italian bread crumbs
1 c. flour
1 T. Old Bay seasoning
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. Creole seasoning
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. dried oregano

Preheat oven to 400. Coat a baking sheet with 3 sprays of vegetable oil. Put the chicken in a large bowl with the ice water. Put the yogurt into a medium bowl. Set both bowls aside.

Toss all the breading ingredients into a large bag. Remove chicken from ice water and pat dry. Dip chicken into yogurt and then into breading, shake to coat thoroughly. Transfer the breaded chicken to the prepared baking sheet. Repeat process until all 12 pieces are breaded. Spray the chicken lightly with vegetable oil.

Place the baking sheet on the bottom shelf of the oven and bake for 1 hour, turning the pieces every 20 minutes to allow even browning.
