Please find below a recipe shared from the book:
1/2 cup fat free milk or buttermilk
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
1 cup cornflakes, crumbled
1 1/2 TBSP Onion Powder
1 1/2 TBSP Garlic Powder
2 tsp Black Pepper
2 tsp Dried Hot Pepper, crushed
1 tsp ginger, ground
8 pieces chicken, skinless (4 breast, 4 drumsticks)
A few shakes of paprika
1 tsp vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350 F
Add 1/2 tsp. of poultry seasoning to milk
Combine all other spices with cornflake crumbs, and place in plastic bag
Wash chicken and pat dry. Dip chicken into milk and shake to remove excess.
Quickly shake in bag with seasonings and crumbs, and remove chicken from the bag.
Refrigerate chicken for 1 hour
Remove chicken from refrigerator and sprinkle lightly with paprika for color.
Space chicken evenly on greased baking pan. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for another 30 to 40 minutes or until meat can easily be pulled away from the bone with fork. Drumsticks may require less baking time than breasts. Crumbs will form crispy "skin."
Note: Do not turn chicken during baking
