Sunday Dinner on the Grill


Everyone knows how hard it is to keep the house cool during the hot summer months. And when you are trying to make a meal in the oven, the kitchen gets unbearably hot! Yesterday, we made crispy oven fried chicken (one of our favorite recipes) and our Dad grilled it 🙂 We pretty much baked the chicken on the grill!


Crush 1½ cups of corn flakes. Add paprika, some rosemary (not listed in ingredients below), garlic powder, oregano, and cayenne pepper and stir together.



Wash the chicken and dip each piece into the egg white.



Roll the chicken pieces in the corn flakes



and lay them in a greased cast iron skillet.



Yup, just like that 🙂 Sprinkle the remaining corn flake crumbs over all the chicken.



Drizzle a little oil on it.



Yummy raw chicken. Okay, you should have your grill heating up. It should be 350 degrees hot (not 350 degrees cold).  Bake the chicken for about an hour, or until it is done.




We served the chicken with grilled homegrown sweet corn and a salad. It was so good!


Crispy Oven Fried Chicken

1½ cups crushed cornflakes

1 tsp. paprika

½ tsp. garlic powder

½ tsp. oregano

¼ tsp. cayenne pepper

1 egg white, slightly beaten

About 3 lb. skinned chicken pieces


Combine dry ingredients in a shallow bowl. Dip each chicken piece in the egg white and then coat in the crumb mixture. Place in greased 13×9 pan and bake at 400° for 45 minutes or until juices run clear.

To grill: Grease a cast iron skillet with olive oil. Lay the coated chicken in it. Heat the grill to 350 degrees, and let the chicken bake for about an hour or until done.
