Skim milk or buttermilk½ cup

  1. Directions
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  3. Add ½ teaspoon of poultry seasoning to milk.
  4. Combine all other spices with cornflake crumbs and place in a plastic bag.
  5. Wash chicken and pat dry. Dip chicken into milk, shake then quickly shake in bag with seasoning and crumbs.
  6. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  7. Remove from refrigerator and sprinkle lightly with paprika for color.
  8. Evenly space chicken on greased baking pan.
  9. Cover with aluminum foil and bake 40 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for an additional 30-40 minutes or until the meat can be easily pulled away from the bone with a fork. The drumsticks may require less baking time than the breasts. Crumbs will form a crispy “skin.” (Do not turn chicken during baking.)
