I am breading chicken the oven
Cindigal posted:
With all these talk about food being crispy without being fried....everyone wants to do the same. This morning I was looking in my cupboards to see how to prepare my chicken tonight. I buy boneless breasts all the time. Usually I pan cook with a little oil with garlic and onions and spices. I wanted to do something different. I am on the Special K diet and I had about 1 cup left of the Cinnamon Pecan cereal. So, I thought to about if I crushed them in the food processor and bread the chicken with the crumbs. I will bake the chicken of course. I am kinda excited about that. Did you ever anyone use cereal to bread

The Hungry Girl recipe site has a recipe for onion rings using Fiber One cereal. She shows the re-make and original recipe. Hers are baked with a crazy # of calories saved.

I just recently saw a recipe make-over for oven parmesan eggplant. They used panko. It too was baked not fried.

Well, keep doing the re-do's. LOL Every cal we can save is worth it because we ARE worth it!

I made those rings Barb, they are so good!
Yes you are right every cal saved is worth it! :)
She has a great pretzel crust recipe as well for chicken, low cal and delish!
