We love chicken here, the thicker the breading the better! That's how we used to think until we got a little older, and a little wiser on how to keep ourselves healthy. I came up with this chicken recipe that still gives us a sense that its deep fried, even though it isn't. Its a great way to soothe a comfort food craving!
RICE KRISPIE CHICKEN
4 medium chicken breasts
1 1/2 slightly crushed rice krispies cereal
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/3 cup egg whites
2 tbsp flour
Mix the rice krispies with the Parmesan cheese and seasonings.
Set up a breading station as pictured below with the flour, rice krispies, the egg whites and the chicken.
Dust the chicken with flour, dip it in the egg white, then coat both sides with the rice krispies. Set chicken on a rack on top a cookie sheet and lightly spray both sides with cooking spray. Let rest 15 minutes before baking.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
