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



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.

This is a healthy low-carb alternative to fried chicken fingers. I am diabetic and have found a way to still enjoy a favorite food, and my family loves them!


  • 12 chicken tenderloins
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • dash of pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesean cheese
  • 1 bag BBQ pork rinds



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.

Add pepper to beaten egg. Crunch up pork rinds. I just vent the bag and pound them with my fists until they are finely crushed! Kind of fun.

Mix pork rinds and cheese in a bowl together. Dip chicken tender into egg mixture and then into pork rind mixture to coat it. Place on baking sheet. Continue until all chicken tenders are coated. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce!

This recipe is simple and uses deglazing of the skillet to make a great sauce.


  • 4 skinned and boned chicken breast halves
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ (fine, dry breadcrumbs from a can, may be used if you don't have any wheat germ.)
  • 1 Tbsp. butter or margarine
  • Ad

  • vegetable cooking spray
  • 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • lemon slices without seeds in them for garnish


Place chicken between two sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and flatten to 1/2 inch thickness, using a rolling pin or meat mallet.

Combine egg and salt. Dip each piece of chicken in egg mixture. Dredge in wheat germ.

Melt butter in large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add chicken. Cook until done, 3 minutes or more. Remove chicken and keep warm.

Add lemon juice to skillet. Cook over high heat, deglazing skillet by scraping bits that cling to bottom of skillet. Pour over chicken.

Garnish with lemon slices, if desired.

Rinse chicken; pat dry. Spread mayonnaise over both sides of chicken, using pastry brush. Place in shallow baking pan. Sprinkle cereal evenly over chicken.
