The last time I went to a family party someone pointed out that I had nice "chicken legs".
Not that I will ever turn down a good skinny leg comment...I don't think they where talking about my thighs...Those are still a work in progress.
The chicken legs where on my plate.
Meet the meat. These are awesome. My sister in law( who as a random matter of fact has the same first name as my birth-sista') made these fabulous drumsticks. As a foodie, I could not go without getting the recipe and posting it. Well done Jen. I loved them. Ace won't touch chicken, not even Jen's. I may have to make about 6 batches of this chicken when he is in Germany. Just for fun. Actually, I may just make baked beans as his main course and have chicken tonight!
Jen's Crispy Oven Baked Chicken legs
12 chicken drum sticks,skin removed
2 Cups corn flakes
pinch of cayenne pepper
pinch of cayenne pepper
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Crush corn flakes in gallon size freezer bag. Add cayenne pepper, Parmesan, salt and pepper. Mix. Remove skin from chicken. Dip each chicken drumstick in egg, then coat w/ corn flake mixture. Spray pan, place chicken in pan. Bake at 350 for about an hour.
Freezer meal side note:
If you want to have these already cooked on hand in your freezer, they work! Cook, then cool in the fridge. When totally cooled, transfer to a gallon size freezer bag (for 6 servings or 2 quart size for 3 servings each). When you want to serve them, pop into the oven and bake at 350 degrees 30 minutes. The cornflakes will re-crisp and you will have a much lower fat version of fried chicken.
Weight Watchers: 2 points per drumstick (if you don't add any fat)
There you go.
my grandma used to make us cornflake chicken and I LOVED IT! Why do I not make it for my family? I"ll bet they'd like it too.--Lisa
That 1/2 parmesan . . . is that 1/2 cup? Those look really good.
Yes. 1/2 cup. I've fixed it. They are really good. Thanks!
hi Stephanie... my husband, Jayme King from Fox 10 met you when you were in the studio... he told me about your c. I just want to tell you that I tried this crispy baked chicken recipe and it is AMAZING! we've already made it twice. thanks so much - your site is wonderful!!
Thank you so much! I had so much fun working with Jayme and hearing how you two met and your darling little one! He seems like a really good guy and I am so glad you found each other. Thanks also for your sweet words about my blog. I look forward to hearing more from you. Best wishes and big hugs!!
This is a family favorite. Our only variation is to marinate the chicken legs before the final roll in corn flake crumb/seasoning mixture. Totally delish. Totally freezable and recrispable from freezer to oven. Thanks for sharing this one!
