Spicy Oven-Fried Chicken

  • 5-6 meaty chicken pieces -- I used thighs
  • 3 T. butter -- melted
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups cornflakes -- crushed
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika

Remove any excess fat and skin from the chicken pieces and set aside. Combine the butter and cayenne in a shallow dish and combine the crushed cornflakes, salt and paprika in another shallow dish. Using a fork, gently roll the chicken pieces in the butter mixture to evenly coat them. Then roll them in the cornflake mixture and place them, 1-2 inches apart, on a baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes in a preheated 375 degree F oven.

  • Yields: 2-3 servings
  • Preparation Time: 1 hour
