My sister is a big Weight watchers follower and this is her recipe. I've used bone-in chicken pieces (legs, thighs,etc..)and it always turns out good.

Satisfied my "fried" chicken craving! I did not have the ranch dressing on hand so I used the dry ingredients from Recipe #131447.

This is very easy to make, and pretty quick also! I used 1/2 cornflake crumbs and half panko, instead of all cornflake crumbs....just not a huge cornflake fan. These turned out very nicely, and they had the advantage of being fairly light calorie wise! Mine weren't nice and golden, so I turned the broiler on for a couple of minutes to get them nice and golden brown on top. Thanks for sharing!

Super easy recipe, I do not like the taste of corn flakes so substituted Special K. It turn out great, juicy and flavorful. Will be using this on my chicken from now on. Also plan on trying it with fish. Thanks for sharing.
