These oven-fried chicken drumsticks have a satisfyingly crunchy texture. We loved the flavor results when we used 1/2 tsp. red pepper. Use 1/4 tsp. for kids.
3 cups cornflake cereal, crushed
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup fat-free buttermilk
8 chicken drumsticks (about 2 lb.), skinned
Vegetable cooking spray
How to Make It
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic freezer bag; seal and shake well to combine.
Pour buttermilk into a shallow bowl. Dip 2 drumsticks in buttermilk, and place in bag. Seal and shake well, coating drumsticks completely. Place drumsticks on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Repeat procedure with remaining drumsticks. Sprinkle remaining cornflake mixture evenly over drumsticks on baking sheet. Lightly coat with cooking spray.
Bake at 425° for 25 to 30 minutes or until drumsticks are well browned and done. Serve immediately.
