Atkins Baked Chicken    

Serves:2-4 people (depending on how many drums you can eat!)

CarbsPerServing:3-4 (to be safe)

Prep Time:5 minute

Effort:Average

Ingredients:

3-4 chicken drumsticks

1 egg, beaten

1/4 cup Atkins bake mix (or other low-carb friendly baking mix)

2 tbsp Adobo (Goya preferred)

**for Italian style chicken, substitute

1/8 cup of grated parmesan/romano cheese w/ Italian seasonings for 1 tbsp of Adobo** salt and pepper

How to Prepare:

Heat oven to 350. For best results, use glass bottom baking dish (if not available, cookie/baking sheets are fine too). No need to spray or butter. Prepare chicken drumsticks (thaw, etc, if they have been in the  freezer). Prepare two bowls, one w/ the beaten egg, the other with the Atkins mix -- which includes the bake mix, adobo seasonings and liberal amounts of salt and pepper (to taste). (To those making Italian-style, grate your parmesan/romano cheese into the bake mix, and add liberal amounts of Italian seasonings and adobo). Mix baking mix around till everything is well-blended. Dip chicken into egg batter, cover well. Take the egg-battered chicken and dip into bake mix, cover well. Take covered chicken drum and place into baking dish. Repeat for as many drums as needed. When completed, place into pre-heated oven. Baked for about 40-45 minutes.
