I subbed half the corn flake crumbs with grated parmesan. Our skin thighs worked well for this dish. Great crunch and we really enjoyed it.

I added Lawrys seasoning salt to the crumbs, it was the best
chicken we have had in a while. Will do this for company next

Wonderful recipe. Even my father who doesn't like chicken liked it. I used boneless skinless chicken and it worked well. I think I would use a little garlic powder next time.
