This diet plan is a pain!

But as per revised Matthew 4:4 “man shall not live by vegetables only”, I came up with this recipe that gives one the idea (and taste) of fried chicken but not its calories.



  • 3 free range eggs
  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • ⅓ cup water
  • ½ cup mix hot sauces (I am using a blend of sauces as per picture)
  • 1 Tbsp dijon  
  • 3 cups cornflakes
  • ½ cup self raising flour
  • 1 tsp black pepper

In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs with the water. Add the hot sauce blend and the dijon. In another bowl, combine the flour and pepper.





Skin the drumsticks. Cut the chicken lengthways  to allow the marinate to imbue the meat. 


Dip the chicken in the egg-wash, let marinate for at least half hour.IMG_4754

Transfer the chicken to  the flour mix and coat well.


In the meantime heat the crisp plate in the microwave (as recommended by the manufacturer),  

Dip the chicken in the egg-wash again


and coat in the cornflakes, transfer the coated drumsticks to the crisp plate and cook at full blast for 15 minutes.


Continue to microwave the drumsticks for intervals of 2 to 3 minutes until the chicken reaches a safe internal temperature of 73’C (165′ F). 

Transfer to a warm serving plate and serve with a side dish of green salad.
