  • Why is frying necessary? And you really need to do a better job with the nutritional info. There is no way one serving of this dish is only 93 calories. I did a quick breakdown (calories only) for each ingredient and divided by 4 (4 servings) and got 635 calories. One leg quarter only, no sides. - 3/24/15
