Honey-pecan crusted chicken

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Pepper
4 Skinned (6-ounce) chicken breast halves
8 Chicken (4-ounce) drumsticks, skinned
¼ cup Honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
¾ teaspoon Paprika
⅛ teaspoon Garlic powder
1¼ cup Finely crushed cornflakes (about 4 cups uncrushed cereal)
½ cup Finely chopped pecans
Cooking spray

1. Preheat oven to 400ø.

2. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over chicken; set aside. Combine honey, mustard, paprika, and garlic powder in a small bowl; stir well. Combine cornflakes and pecans in a shallow dish; stir well. Brush both sides of chicken with honey mixture; dredge in cornflake mixture.

3. Place chicken pieces on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Lightly coat chicken with cooking spray, and bake at 400ø for 40 minutes or until done.

You would expect Southern fried chicken to be served with lots of calories and fat. Not our version, though -- we baked the chicken instead of frying it, and we gave it a crisp, greaseless crust made from crushed cornflakes and chopped pecans.
