I found this recipe about 4 years ago and I have been making it ever since. It has a wonderful taste and it is so crunchy. It is definitely one of my husbands favorite chicken recopies as well as all my guests. This recipe does not get boring so it can be made again and again and trust me it will be! I hope you enjoy it!

Loved this delicious chicken! The breading was very flavorful and the chicken baked up so moist and tasty. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts, lowfat mayo, and smoked paprika. Great recipe - thanks for sharing! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2011

Made this chicken for dinner tonight using boneless skinless chicken breast strips. I followed the seasoning right down the line for the mayo but subbed panko bread crumbs that I seasoned with just a couple of dashes of cayenne pepper for the cornflake crumbs. The chicken came out so moist and tender with a wonderful light crunchy coating. I will definitely be making this again as it received no complaints. Made for Spring PAC 2011.

During PAC I cook quite a bit for a house-bound neighbor couple, but we were invited to their place for dinner one night (though I furnished the dinner!) & this was the main course! Much appreciated by everyone, it was so delicious! I followed your recipe right on down & the chicken was perfect! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
