Don’t Be A Chicken

Last night we had cornflake crusted chicken! It was fabulous and much healthier than traditional fried chicken! Check this out…it is definitely an adult AND kid pleaser!! You can use regular cornflakes cereal or I used gluten-free corn flake crumbs (already crushed…how convenient is that?) that I found then at HEB!

4 chicken drumsticks
4 chicken thighs
1 egg
2 cups crushed cornflake crumbs
1 T. olive oil
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Season chicken generously with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg with 1 tablespoon water.
In a large bowl, mix cornflake crumbs with olive oil and cayenne pepper and 1 teaspoon salt.
Dip chicken in egg mixture and then into crumb mixture and place on a baking pan.
Bake in oven for 30 minutes. For the last 5 minutes switch the oven to broil for desired crispiness!
