  • Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Add ½ teaspoon of poultry seasoning to milk.
  • Combine all other spices with cornflake crumbs and place in a plastic bag.
  • Wash chicken and pat dry. Dip chicken into milk, shake then quickly shake in bag with seasoning and crumbs.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Remove from refrigerator and sprinkle lightly with paprika for color.
  • Evenly space chicken on greased baking pan.
  • Cover with aluminum foil and bake 40 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for an additional 30-40 minutes or until the meat can be easily pulled away from the bone with a fork. The drumsticks may require less baking time than the breasts. Crumbs will form a crispy “skin.” (Do not turn chicken during baking.)
