Let's Make It
Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine cereal, flour and seasoned salt in shallow dish or pie plate. Beat egg white with water in separate shallow bowl. Dip meaty side of each chicken piece in egg white mixture, then in cereal mixture.
Place chicken, coated sides up, on baking sheet; spray lightly with cooking spray.
Bake 40 min. or until chicken is golden brown and cooked through (180ºF).
Makeover - How We Did It
Baking the chicken instead of frying saves 100 calories, 10.5 grams of fat and 3 grams of satured fat per serving when compared to the same amount of fast-food fried chicken.
Substitute 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lb.) for bone-in chicken. Bake 20 to 25 min. or until chicken is cooked through (170ºF).
Substitute 1 tsp. salt-free herb blend for the seasoned salt.
