Honey Fried Drumsticks & Sesame Sugar Snap Peas

Always on the quest to find tasty ways to use chicken that fall within my WW plan, I grabbed this recipe from http://www.aimeesadventures.com/RecipeFiles/MainDishes/MD98.html

The picture looked delicious, the end result was too! I did substitute 1 1/2lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts for the thighs, baked them for about 25 mins. I tossed the little bit of extra cereal, since mine seemed well coated. Definitely going into the Favorites file!

 As a side dish, I decided on this recipes from the WW 5 Star Recipes book. It didn't state whether to defrost the sugar snap peas first or not, I zapped mine for just about a minute and watched them for "popping" when I added them to the oil. I also added a teaspoon of honey to tie it in with the chicken dish, but it didn't really need it! I halved the recipe, and would definitely make these again. Some toasted sesame seeds sprinkled on top would be a nice finishing touch!

Honey Fried Drumsticks

3 Cups Crispy Rice Cereal
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
3 Tablespoons Honey
2 Tablespoons Teriyaki Sauce
10 Chicken Drumsticks without skin

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place the rice crispy cereal into a medium bowl and crush slightly with your hands. Stir in the garlic powder and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the honey and teriyaki sauce, set aside. Place the drumsticks into the honey mixture and toss to coat. Place a sheet a foil (dull side up) onto a baking sheet and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place 1 drumstick at a time into the cereal mixture and place a thick coating of cereal onto it. Place each drumstick onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle any leftover honey mixture evenly over the drumsticks and then place any leftover cereal on top. Bake until the chicken is done and the coating is golden brown.
