    Things To Grab

    • Wire cooling rack
    • Large resealable plastic bag
    • 2 shallow dishes
    • Meat thermometer


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet; spray rack with cooking spray.

    2. Combine cereal, cayenne pepper, paprika, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and thyme in a large resealable plastic bag. Using a rolling pin, lightly crush cereal mixture. Pour cereal mixture into a shallow dish.

    3. Whisk together egg whites and hot sauce in a second shallow dish; set aside. Dip chicken pieces, one at a time, into egg white mixture, then coat chicken with cereal mixture. Place chicken on the prepared rack and bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until juices run clear (165 degrees).
