Corn Flake Crusted Oven-"Fried" Chicken Drumsticks
8 bone-in, skinless chicken drumsticks
ground black pepper
egg or ¼ cup egg whites or nonfat buttermilk
cups crushed cornflakes or whole wheat panko bread crumbs
cayenne pepper, (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse chicken, and pat dry. Season generously
In a small bowl, whisk egg with 1 tablespoon water. In a large bowl, mix
cornflakes with oil and cayenne.
Working with one piece at a time, dip chicken in egg mixture, then coat
with seasoned cornflakes, pressing flakes to help them adhere. Transfer coated
pieces to a rimmed baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake until golden brown and crisp, about 45-60 minutes. Sprinkle with black
pepper before serving.
