Cornflake Chicken

Cornflake Chicken

Cornflakes are the main ingredient in the breading on this easy baked chicken recipe. Use this Cornflake Chicken recipe with chicken breasts, thighs or chicken tenders. If you’re looking for an alternative to fried chicken, give this baked cornflake chicken a try. You may be surprised at how similar this chicken, which bakes in a little bit of melted butter, tastes to fried chicken. It’s an easy dinner idea that the kids will love!

Mix cornflake crumbs together with your favorite spices for a delicious coating to baked chicken. We needed about 3 cups of whole cornflakes to get about 2 cups of cornflake crumbs. Kellogg’s actually sells cornflake crumbs for the purpose of coating chicken and using in recipes, so if you make this often, it may be worth buying. We just put whole cornflakes in a baggie and crush them with a cup or rolling pin. We like to add paprika, salt, pepper and dry mustard to the cornflake crumbs for flavor. This gives it a classic fried chicken taste. Although fried chicken is delicious, baking chicken in the oven can be just as flavorful, with less fat. Is this baked chicken healthy? Well…it does have 1/4 cup butter that the chicken bakes in, but I’d say it’s a healthier replacement to frying chicken at home or buying fried chicken at a restaurant. And trust me…it’s so, so good!
