Skinless chicken is a high-quality protein with all the essential amino acids your body needs to build muscle and stay healthy. And with this recipe, you get the flavor of fried chicken without the heart-clogging fat.

2 egg whites
2 cups crushed cornflakes
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp dried mixed herbs

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place egg whites in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, mix together crushed cornflakes, paprika and mixed herbs. Dip chicken pieces into egg whites, then into cornflake crumbs to coat.
