Marla's Oven Fried Chicken with Cashew Crust

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

I came up with this recipe just on a whim, one day when I was in the mood for oven fried chicken. I had done chicken with the corn flake crumbs before and knew that it was good, but I added the cashews, my DH said I had a real winner.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Finely chop cashews and corn flakes in blender or food processor and place in a ziplock bag along with season salt.
  3. Dip chicken in milk and put in bag with crumbs.
  4. Make sure that the chicken is well covered with crumb mixture.
  5. Place chicken in baking dish.
  6. Melt butter and drizzle over chicken.
  7. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.

I used boneless/skinless chicken breast halves and cut them in half. The only thing I did different was to drizzeled a little butter over them before baking. This made for a "moist" coating rather than a crisp breading...(just a personal preference at the moment). I couldn't believe how easy and tasty this dish was. No doubt I will be making this over and over again. Thanks for sharing this.
