Texas Golden Chicken

8 chicken legs, skinned
2 Tbsp. orange juice concentrate
6 Tbsp. seasoned bread crumbs
(I make my own to get rid of salt)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

To prepare:
1. Puncture drumsticks with a fork and
brush with orange juice concentrate

2. Spray a non-stick jelly-roll pan with cooking spray

3. Combine bread crumbs, salt, black pepper,
paprika and cayenne pepper in a plastic bag;
add chicken and shake well to coat lightly.

4. Arrange chicken in a single layer in pan.

5. Bake, without turning, at 450 degrees for
30 minutes or until crisp and golden brown.
Blot with paper towel for extra crispness.

Best served at once.

Says it serves 4 but in my house it serves 6 because the little ones only eat one each.
