Cornflake-Crumb Oven Fried Chicken

"I can't believe that this chicken recipe is not listed here! My Mom made this for us growing up and then I made it for my DH and kids who also love it and it's so easy. She got the recipe from the cornflake crumb box or from Wishbone dressing. Use any kind of bone in chicken parts. I estimated the amount of crumbs used since you may need more depending on the size of your pieces. have these variations too: 1. dip chicken parts in mixture of 1 egg, slightly beaten with 1/4 cup soy sauce and then roll in the crumbs 2. dip chicken in 1/3 cup melted butter and roll in mixture of cornflake crumbs, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 1 tbsp. dried parsley, 1/2 tsp. oregano and 1/4 tsp. minced garlic. 3. dip chicken in mixture of 1/4 cup melted butter, 3 tbsp. lemon juice and 1 tsp. lemon zest and roll in mixture of 1 1/4 cups cornflake crumbs, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. pepper."

Ready In:
1hr 10mins


  • 4 pieces chicken, bone-in (with or without skin)
  • 1 (16 ounce) bottle Italian dressing, we like Wishbone
  • 2 cups corn flake crumbs


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Put the dressing in a wide narrow bowl so that the chicken can either be dipped (or you can marinate the chicken if you have time which will be better) and coat with the dressing.
  • Put the crumbs in another bowl or shallow dish with a lip, and roll the chicken in the crumbs to coat.
  • Place on a foil lined cookie sheet or Pyrex baking dish, skin side up, and bake for 1 hour or until done.

  1. This was delish. I cooked the dipped in egg and soya sauce variation and we all loved it :) i especially liked "cleaning" the pan afterwards :D
  2. We enjoyed this recipe although it seemed to taste sweet which we were not expecting. I used chicken drumsticks and made as posted. Thanks for posting this recipe!


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
