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!

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.
