Ingredients

1/2 sleeve (about 20) whole-grain salted crackers, pulsed in a food processor until fine (about 1/2 cup)

2 1/2 cups corn cereal flakes, pulsed in a food processor to fine crumbs (about 1/2 cup)

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

2 egg whites

1 cup lowfat, plain yogurt

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon salt

Olive oil cooking spray

4 medium sized skinless chicken breasts and 4 skinless chicken thighs, rinsed and patted dry (about 3 1/2 pounds chicken)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with olive oil.
  2. Combine the crackers and corn cereal crumbs, sesame seeds, cayenne, and garlic powder in a shallow bowl. Reserve.
  3. In a large bowl, combine egg whites, yogurt, Dijon mustard, and salt. Add the chicken pieces and coat thoroughly with the yogurt mixture.
