This is a traditional southern favorite. Very healthy too! This is a traditional southern favorite. Very healthy too!
Number of Servings: 6


    3 pound chicken legs and thighs, skin and visible fat removed
    1-1/2 cups cornflakes, made into about 3/4 cup crumbs
    2 tablespoons melted margarine
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    Non-stick Spray


Preheat the oven to 375°.

Crush the cornflakes until you have approximately 3/4-cup of crumbs. Transfer the crumbs to a cereal bowl. Set aside. In another cereal bowl combine the melted margarine, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Squirt a little non-stick spray into the butter and lemon juice for emulsification. Use a fork to beat the mixture together until it is cohesive and almost creamy. This will take about a minute of beating.

Dip the raw chicken thighs into the lemon-margarine mixture and then into the crumbs. Place the coated pieces on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Repeat with the remaining chicken. Arrange them so they don't touch each other if possible. Bake at 375° for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.
