Crispy Chicken and Oven Fries

(Serves 4 – 6)

Crispy Chicken

  • 12 chicken drumsticks with skin
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 small pouch of tomato basil soup (approx. 3 tbsp)
  • 2 Tbsp Italian seasoning mix
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 2 egg whites
  • Cooking spray
  • Pre-heat oven to 425 F.

Pour the following ingredients into a medium size bowl to make a coating mix: flour, instant tomato soup mix, Italian seasoning mix, baking powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Roll raw drumsticks in egg white, then coating mixture.

Spray baking pan with cooking spray, place coated drumsticks in pan and set pan on lower central rack of preheated oven. Bake for 50 minutes.

Oven Fries:

  • Cooking spray
  • 6 medium red potatoes, washed well
  • 1 ½ Tbsp canola oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp your choice of herb mix (fresh or dried)

Preheat the oven to 425 F (220 C). Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray (for easier clean up).

Using large, sharp, non-serrated knife cut the potatoes into very thin slices, about 1/8 inch (3 mm) thick or into thin sticks by using a mandolin. Place the potato slices and canola oil in a large bowl and toss to coat well. Spread the potato slices evenly on the prepared pan. Sprinkle with salt and herbs, if desired. Bake for about 15 minutes, then flip with a spatula and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.Yield: 6 servings.
