Number of Servings: 8


    8 Chicken Legs
    2 Large Eggs
    2/3 Cup Bread Crumbs
    4 tsp Kraft Reduced fat Parmesan Cheese-Grated
    Seasons to taste
    Cooking Spray-Calorie free


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Beat the two eggs in a medium bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix together. Spray a cooking sheet or dark cake pan with cooking spray. I use Pam's Olive Oil spray. Take each chicken leg individually and coat it in the egg, then move and coat with the bread crumb mixture. Place side by side in the pan and bake for 45-50 minutes. Turning once. Makes 8 1 leg servings.

    Made this last night. My entire family love it. I never say "my entire family" because someone will find something wrong with it. Easy to put together. Thank you, GREAT RECIPE. - 7/28/09

  • I crushed seasoned whole wheat crutons with rolling pin to make the bread crumbs and it worked out perfectly. My mother had left over chicken alfredo and we made a lettuce salad and WA LA! A healthy dinner was made with very little effort. My kind of meal! - 4/6/15

  • I have tried many oven fried chicken recipes over the years. This is by far the most workable. The breading stays on the chicken and it is delicious!
    I made the recipe as written. Since the recipe did not specify I used fine bread crumbs and removed the skin from the chicken legs. It was great. - 11/2/09
