Hot and Spicy Drumsticks
Irresistibly good and surprisingly easy to prepare.
Serves 4 |
|2 egg whites, lightly beaten |
|1/2 cup yellow cornmeal |
|2 teaspoons chili powder |
|1/2 teaspoon ground cumin |
|1/4 teaspoon salt |
|1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper |
|8 chicken legs |
|1/4 cup fresh lime juice |
| Lime wedges, for garnish |
| Parsley, for garnish |
- Preheat oven to 400° F. Spray a 13" x 9" baking dish with vegetable cooking spray. Set aside.
- Place egg whites in a shallow bowl. On a sheet of waxed paper, combine cornmeal, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Dip chicken legs, one at a time, in egg whites, then dredge in cornmeal mixture, turning to coat.
- Arrange chicken in prepared dish and bake for 20 minutes, turning once. Drizzle with lime juice and bake until juices run clear when meat is pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes.
- Place chicken on serving plates, garnish with lime wedges and parsley.
