Category: Poultry

 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Pepper
  • 4 Skinned (6-ounce) chicken
  • -breast halves
  • 8 Chicken (4-ounce)
  • -drumsticks, skinned
  • 1/4 c Honey
  • 2 tb Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 ts Paprika
  • 1/8 ts Garlic powder
  • 1 1/4 c Finely crushed cornflakes
  • -(about 4 cups uncrushed
  • -cereal)
  • 1/2 c Finely chopped pecans
  • Cooking spray


1. Preheat oven to 400ø.

2. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over chicken; set aside. Combine honey,
mustard, paprika, and garlic powder in a small bowl; stir well. Combine
cornflakes and pecans in a shallow dish; stir well. Brush both sides of
chicken with honey mixture; dredge in cornflake mixture.

3. Place chicken pieces on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
Lightly coat chicken with cooking spray, and bake at 400ø for 40 minutes or
until done.

You would expect Southern fried chicken to be served with lots of calories
and fat. Not our version, though we baked the chicken instead of frying
it, and we gave it a crisp, greaseless crust made from crushed cornflakes
and chopped pecans.
