Oven Fried Chicken

My little Lady & Bug LOVE fried chicken and Shake & Bake, but it's so unhealthy, so I've tried to find a healthier version. If you find something healthy a toddler will eat, you make it!

Oven "Fried" Chicken

10-12 chicken drumsticks or thighs
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp. Flour
1 egg
3 Tbsp. Milk
1 Sleeve of crackers (any kind you want)
1 Tbsp. Flour
1 tsp. Thyme
1/2 tsp. Paprika
1/2 tsp. Oregano
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
1/8 tsp Salt (optional)
2 Tbsp. melted butter (optional)

On a plate, combine flour & 1/8 tsp. black pepper.

In a bowl combine milk & egg

In another bowl, combine sleeve of crackers (crushed), 1 Tbsp flour, paprika, thyme, oregano and 1/8 tsp. pepper.

Dip the chicken drumstick into the flour and shake off the excess. For a healthier option remove the skin.

Dip the floured drumstick into the egg & milk mixture and coat evenly.

Do the same in the cracker crumb mixture.

Lay them on a cookie sheet with space between them. You can drizzle a little melted butter on top of each or spray with cooking spray if you would like the "fried" crispy skin.

Bake in the oven @ 375 F for 45-55 minutes until meat is no longer pink inside.

Lady LOVES this chicken, she licks it and says, "yum - it good mommy" between every bite!

Happy to oblige little Lady!
