Oven Fried Chicken

(low fat)

Boneless Skinless Chicken breast halves (about 1/2 lb. each)
2 1/2 cups cornflakes
1 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 teaspoon paprika
About 1/2 teaspoon salt
About 1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 large eggs
Cooking Spray

1. Rinse chicken and pat the pieces dry.

2. Place cornflakes in a plastic food bag and crush gently with your hands to make coarse crumbs.

3. Add thyme, paprika, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to bag; shake to mix.

4. In a shallow bowl, beat eggs with a fork.

5. Coat chicken pieces with eggs, drain briefly, then put in bag with crumb mixture, 1 piece at a time. Turn bag to coat chicken well.

6. Arrange chicken pieces slightly apart in a 13 by 9-inch nonstick pan. Lightly mist chicken with cooking oil spray.

7. Bake chicken in a 425° oven until meat is no longer pink in thickest part (cut to test), about 25 minutes for breasts, about 30 minutes for legs.

8. Add salt and pepper to taste.
