>Tortilla Crusted Chicken Drumsticks or No Such Thing as a Sure Thing

>I came up with the greatest recipe the other day. Tortilla and Parmesan encrusted chicken drumsticks. It was a breeze to make and tasted delicious, crunchy, juicy, just like fried chicken but healthier. As I was making it, I was patting myself on the back, congratulating myself for having come up with a sure hit with the kids. It smelled so good as it cooked that I was giddy when I finally put it on the table.

Then I looked up at the kids’ faces. Each was wearing a more disgusted grimace than the next.

After much coaxing, I got them all to eat the chicken. Juliette was a big fan but neither Jack nor Bella were happy. My husband and I were baffled. There was nothing not to like.

We’ll be trying it again soon – I’m sure second time will be a charm. Hopefully it will be a home run the first time around in your houses.

Tortilla Parmesan Crusted Chicken
Ingredients:
2 cups of corn tortilla chips (pulverized in food processor)
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan
a dozen chicken drumsticks
4 eggs

1) Crush the tortillas in a food processor with the parmesan. Pulse until a coarse meal.
2) Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Farenheit.
3) Beat the eggs with a fork. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture then coat with crushed tortillas.
4) Place on a cookie sheet coated with aluminum foil.
5) Cook for 45 minutes to an hour. Let rest for 5 minutes then serve.

    >My youngest will turn his nose up at anything not familiar on the dinner table. Sometimes after he tries it, he'll go back for more… oldest will try anything once. Looks like a great recipe to me, I'm always looking for new ways to create crispy chicken!

    >i'm going to be trying it, but I think with fish!
    We're suspecting a wheat allergy at our house so I'm looking for replacements to crackers. Thanks! Can't wait to try it. It sounds delicious!

    >I'm definitely going to try this! Ir reminds me of the chicken my grandma use to make using Wheaties and a little parmesan. She'd dip it in egg and then roll it in the crushed Wheaties.
