One of several recipes given to me by a dietician for my diabetes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 375*F. In a small cup or bowl, combine egg white and milk. Combine cereal, cornmeal, and seasonings in a small zippered plastic bag.
  2. Dip chicken legs into egg white and milk, then drop into plastic bag and shake to coat.
  3. Bake chicken legs in nonstick baking dish for 25 minutes. Turn and bake an additional 7 to 10 minutes or until done.
  4. For an extra-crispy version, use cracker crumbs instead of cereal. This coating is great on fish, too.

Tasty! I couldn't get chicken legs except in an *enormous* package so I used 4 bone-in chicken thighs instead (skin removed). The only thing I would add next time is a little salt to the coating. Thanks for the recipe!

Wonderful! The cornmeal in the coating really gives this chicken a crunch! Not only is the recipe suitable for diabetics, it's also low in fat which appealed to me. I doubled the recipe but otherwise followed it to the letter. Tasty and healthy! Thank you, kclay.
