Mom never liked crumb coating so I had a childhood free of American staples such as Shake N Bake or corn flake crumbs. Discovered them on my own and have recently begun to try some posted here. I really liked the combination of flavors from the preserves, mustard and hot sauce. So much so, I wish they permeated the chicken more and would suggest pounding the chicken a bit to do that. (Be careful with cooking time then as this was perfectly cooked in the stated time.) I also used a combination of flakes with bran flakes as a the posting chef suggested and thought it worked really well giving a slightly nutty flavor to the crispy shell. Thanks Redsie.

A different taste in chicken than we are used to, but it was really very good. The chicken came out very moist and I loved the crunchiness from the cornflakes. Thanks for sharing, Redsie.

Exchanged Apricots to Mandarin Oranges (not a fan of Apricots) Also changed corn flakes to Italian Style bread crumbs. Recipe was very good, and the kids loved it. Easy to make and oranges added a zesty flavor.
