These were great, the cheddar was a nice touch!.. made them for lunch for my 3 and 4 year old today... I used one chicken breast and made 1/4 of the normal breading ingredients (just used a splash of salt and pepper in the flower and it was nice). Served them with some improvised honey mustard, fruits and veggies and pretzels. I feel much better about these than the processed stuff in a bag that you buy at the grocery store. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
These were much tastier than I thought they were going to be. I successfully scaled the recipe for 2 servings, although I needed a bit more cornflake crumbs and cheese. I spiced up the salt, pepper and flour mixture with some dried onion, paprika and cayenne. These cooked for me in about 20 minutes. Very tasty. Thanks!
I changed it a li’l bit. I rub chicken w/ salt & pepper, garlic powder and refrigerate it. I made 2 kinds of crunchers: Crushed cornflakes with grated cheese, while the other one is cornflakes with cashew nuts. Baked them at exactly 25min. Didn’t turn the chicken, but it did cook evenly. Except for the cheese, they semi burned at the bottom of the baking dish. I think they were great, a bit on the dry side but great since this is a healthy dish
