cup crushed toasted whole wheat flake cereal
teaspoon garlic powder
teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
Preheat oven to 450°F. In a resealable plastic bag, combine crushed cereal, paprika, garlic powder, oregano, and, if desired, cayenne pepper. In a small bowl, beat egg white with a fork.
Dip chicken pieces into egg white, allowing excess to drip off. Add chicken pieces, a few at a time, to cereal mixture in bag; shake to coat well.
Place chicken pieces in a single layer in an ungreased shallow baking pan. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170°F).
