Day 12: HG's Crispity Crunchity Drumsticks

Monday Madness was in ful affect! We had such a fun and enjoyable weekend and Monday just came in an took away our happiness...not really. But we still enjoyed some good ole'  "fried" chicken! It was literally finger licken good! Here is the skinny: 

6 raw chicken drumsticks, skin removed 
1/2 tsp. salt, divided 
1/2 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original)
1 1/4 tsp. black pepper 
3/4 tsp. garlic powder 
3/4 tsp. onion powder 
3/4 tsp. dried oregano 
1/4 tsp. chili powder 
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (likeEgg Beaters Original) 
Optional: additional seasonings, to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray and set aside. Season chicken with 1/4 tsp. salt and set aside. 

Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Transfer crumbs to a large sealable plastic bag. Add remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and all other seasonings. Seal bag and shake to mix. Open bag and, if you like, season crumbs to taste with additional seasonings. Set aside.

Place egg substitute in a wide bowl. Two at a time, coat drumsticks in egg substitute, gently shake to remove excess liquid and place in the bag with the crumbs. Seal and shake to coat. Transfer crumb-coated drumsticks to the baking sheet and repeat with remaining drumsticks. 

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes and then carefully flip. Bake for another 15 - 20 minutes, until crispy and cooked through. 

2 Drumsticks: 5 PP

We had this with some roasted chicken rice and green beans: 
Roasted chicken Rice: 1/2 cup- 3 PP
Green Beans: 1 cup- 0 PP

TOTAL: 8 PP (for dinner that left me with plenty for delicious desert!!)

My honey loved loved loved this! He said it tasted better than any fast food restaurant! EAT YOUR HEART OUT KFC!

~Happy Eating!
