Want delicious crispy chicken without the oil and frying? It is possible. This Crispy Honey Chicken recipe was adapted from a recipe in the Meal Makeover Moms cookbook I picked up at the library. I loved dipping the chicken in a flavorful sauce instead of milk, egg or oil before adding the coating. It's just delicious! By baking instead of frying, you avoid the mess and all the greasy calories. These drumsticks are very sticky, so line your pan with foil and be prepared to let the kids lick their fingers.
- 2 cups rice cereal (Krispies or Chex)
- 1/2 cup almonds, finely chopped (the original recipe called for pecans)
- 3 Tbsp honey
- 2 Tbsp light Teriyaki sauce
- 12 chicken drumsticks, skinned (about 3 lbs)
- salt and pepper
