Welcome back to Sandtondiet and today’s recipe for easy and healthy crumbed chicken legs

As I’ve mentioned before I am often trying out new recipes in my attempt to keep the food at home interesting. There not quite as irritating as being told that the dinner that you have served doesn’t taste good. Especially after putting a lot of time and effort into the meal.

this won’t be the case with these crumbed chicken legs. They are tasty and moist and really fun for the kids in the family to eat. If you haven’t crumbed anything before, please don’t worry. It’s as simple as dipping the skinless chickens leg into flour, then into eggs and then finally into the crumb mixture. I made my own low GI crumbs for this recipe, which is below, but feel free to use whatever crumbs that you want.

I have LOTS of other chicken recipes if this crumbed chicken leg recipe isn’t up your alley. Why not try out my honey mustard chicken with butternut or these delicious shredded chicken tacos

There are also many resources out there with phenomenal chicken recipes. Jamie Oliver has a now famous chicken recipe that he cooks in milk – Nagi from Recipe Tin Eats has a roast chicken that is just to die for –

I hope that I have given you some food inspiration today. Without any further delays her is the recipe for my easy and healthy crumbed chicken legs. Enjoy! Until next time, Leanne xoxo
