Cornflake-crusted Baked Chicken

This chicken is delicious!  You'll be surprised...  Kids and adults love it.

4 bone-in, skinless chicken drumsticks
4 bone-in, skinless chicken  thighs
coarse salt and ground pepper
1 large egg
2 cups crushed cornflakes
1 tbl olive oil
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Rinse chicken, and pat dry.  Season generously with salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, whisk egg with 1 tbl water.  In a large bowl, mix cornflakes with oil, cayenne, and 1 tsp salt.

Coat chicken by first dipping in egg, then rolling in seasoned cornflakes.  Arrange on a cookie sheet and bake until golden brown and crisp, about 30 minutes.
