Crunchy Chicken Legs

These are so crunch and brown, you won't notice they are oven fried.


  • 6 chicken legs
  • flour
  • two egg whites
  • mustard, about 1 Tbsp (your favorite)
  • Ad
  • bread crumbs (fresh made, this is key)
  • garlic, a couple of fresh cloves, mashed
  • butter, about a Tbsp. melted


Pat legs dry and dust lightly with flour. Dip in the two beaten egg whites, to which you have added, a little mustard and about a Tbsp. flour

Now, roll in your browned bread crumbs: Take four slices of bread and crumble in your food processor. You want these to be a little sturdy so pulse about 6 times.

Add a little garlic (fresh) now if you like it. Add a little melted butter and mix all together. Put on aluminum foil lined pan and spread out. Cook in 350 degree F. oven until very brown. Trust me on this one.

Once you have rolled your legs in crumbs, (the chicken, not yours, LOL) put them on a foil lined pan and bake in 350 degree F oven for about twenty minutes. It will of course, depend on how large your legs are.


You can use this same recipe for chops or chicken cutlets, too.

My first reaction to this recipe was "Yuck". But my son encouraged me to try it and it was delish!

Captain Crunch Chicken:

2 cups Captain Crunch cereal

1 1/2 cup corn flakes

1 egg

1 cup milk

1 cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 pounds chicken breast cut in 1 ounce tenders

vegetable oil for frying

In small bowl, mix milk and egg and set aside. Combine cereals in a ziplock bag and crush. Add next 6 ingredients and mix with crushed cereal until well blended. Dip pieces of chicken in milk/egg wash then in crushed cereal and either deep fry or oven fry on greased pan at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes or until juices run clear.
