Truly comfort food! At only 154 calories per serving, 4 grams of fat and 14 and 1/2 carbs per serving, this is a very good substitute for the fast food fried chicken. Truly comfort food!

Number of Servings: 5


    5 Chicken drumsticks
    1/2 cup of Food Club Italian Style Breadcrumbs
    1 cup of Special K cereal (finely crushed)
    1/4 cup Kraft Parmesan Cheese (grated)
    1/4 cup Food Club Great Egg-Spectations (Real Egg Product)
    1/4 cup - 2% milk
    Butter flavored cooking spray


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large zip-lock bag, finely crush Special K cereal. Add Bread crumbs and parmesan cheese.

In shallow bowl, mix egg and milk together.

Place chicken in cereal mixture and lightly coat each piece. Coat each piece of chicken with the egg and milk mixture and return to the bag to coat a second time. (This process seems to work better 1 piece of chicken at a time) Discard unused cereal coating mix.

Place chiken on sprayed baking pan. Lightly spray the chicken with the cooking spray.

Bake for 10 - 15 minutes. Turn chicken and cook for an additional 15 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.

Chicken will be done when the checked internal temperature reaches 180 degrees F with a meat thermometer.

Number of Servings: 5
