Katie, a friend of mine on The Nest recently posted about her Citi's chicken recipe. When I checked out her blog I put it on my menu for the week. It is basically an oven fried chicken, but different than I've ever seen. The breading and marinade is what drew me to the recipe (and the fact that I love fried chicken). This breading consists of oats and corn flakes. The marinade uses yogurt and wine. All of these ingredients sounded wonderful together and I knew it would make a great chicken dish. I ended up marinading the chicken overnight to ensure it would have the most flavor.
