These recipes are from Everyday Food Recipes, PBS. They were easy to make and yummy! We kept the skins on. We used paprika instead of cayenne pepper. I dried the chicken, seasoned them, whisked the eggs, mixed the cornflakes. I covered the chicken with the mix and put the pieces to the pan. I also trimmed and cut the beans, cut the tofu, mixed the sauce, and mixed everything.
Cornflake Chicken Serves 8
4 bone-in, skinless chicken drumsticks
4 bone-in skinless chicken thighs
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 large egg
2 cups crushed cornflakes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon paprika
- Preheat oven to 400° . Rinse chicken, and pat dry. Season generously with salt and pepper.
- In a small bowl, whisk egg with 1 tablespoon water. In a large bowl, mix cornflakes with oil, paprika, and 1 teaspoon salt.
- Working with one piece of chicken at a time, dip chicken in egg mixture, then coat with seasoned cornflakes, pressing flakes to help them adhere. Transfer coated pieces to a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until golden brown and crisp, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper before serving.
