Faux Fried Chicken
Serves 8 - 6pts+ each

1 cup corn flake crumbs
1 ounce parmesan cheese
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
8 chicken pieces (thighs, drumsticks)
cooking spray

In a shallow bowl or pie plate, mix corn flake crumbs with Parmesan, paprika, marjoram, thyme, seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Set aside.

Pour buttermilk into a second shallow bowl or pie plate and flour into a third shallow bowl or pie plate.

Generously spray a rimmed baking sheet with safflower oil or cooking spray (see tip below). Rinse chicken and pat dry using paper towels. Working one at a time, dip chicken pieces in buttermilk and moisten on all sides. Shake off excess buttermilk. Place chicken in bowl with flour mixture and turn to coat. Dip in buttermilk again, then coat with seasoned corn flake mixture. This process can get a little messy, but hang in there! Double dipping is what makes the chicken extra yummy. Place chicken pieces on prepared baking sheet. Leave some space between chicken pieces (they should not be touching). Spray some cooking spray over the pieces of chicken.

Bake, uncovered, at 400ºF for 35 to 40 minutes, until chicken is golden brown and juices run clear. Enjoy!
