Cornflake-Crusted Baked Chicken

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Japanese Delight

This recipe is from Everday Foods. I just tried it out and it is SOO GOOD & crispy! I was impressed!!!! The recipe calls for bone-in legs and thighs, but I just used 4 breasts each cut into 3 diagonal strips.

This is exactly what I was looking for!! Nice baked "fried" chicken. It baked nicely & stayed crispy. Plus, it looked great! Only complaint - I can usually handle hot stuff, but it was just a tad too spicy for me. Next time I'll use a little less cayenne & I think it will be perfect. Otherwise, FANTASTIC!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Rinse chicken, and pat dry. Season generously with salt, garlic powder and pepper.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk egg with 1 tablespoon water. In a large bowl, mix cornflakes with oil, cayenne, and 1 teaspoon salt.
  4. Working with one piece of chicken at a time, dip chicken in egg mixture, then coat with seasoned cornflakes, pressing flakes to help them adhere. Transfer coated pieces to a rimmed baking sheet.
  5. Bake until golden brown and crisp, about 30 minutes.
