Craving for some fried chicken? We love fried chicken, but the thought of frying which can be a greasy mess, makes me think twice about frying them. And the leftover oil, kinda waste.
This easy peasy recipe would take care of your fried chicken craving. The chicken pieces are dipped in egg white, then coat with the crumb coating which is a mixture of dried bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, cornmeal, ground red pepper, and a pinch of salt. Place the pieces in a greased baking tray, then spray lightly with some cooking spray. Bake in a preheated oven until the chicken is done.
