Cornflake Crusted Chicken

"This is a variation of a recipe I had found. This is my ALL time favorite way to eat baked chicken. I can not say enough good things about this!!! Make sure to use chicken that is NOT frozen for best results. This turns out so nice and crispy. My picky daughter even eats it all up !!! We have even made chicken strips from it instead to make it more kid friendly. I serve it with white pepperd gravy to dip it in on put on top- YUM YUM..... LET ME STRESS AGAIN HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO NOT USE FROZEN CHICKEN BREAST- IT WILL MAKE THE CRUST SOGGY ESPECIALLY ON THE BOTTOMS AS EXPEIENCED BY SOME MEMBERS"

Ready In:
4 breast




  • preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • salt, pepper and put chicken poultry seasoning on breast front and back.
  • mix egg and water in a bowl.
  • crush cornflakes and mix in butter ( i use land of lakes) and more chicken poultry seasoning to taste.
  • dip breast into egg/water mixture and roll in the cornflake crust to coat. Mixture will be moist so you may have to pat it on there.
  • I also make extra crust if needed and pat it onto tops of breast once I place them onto my baking sheet.
  • bake at 400 for about 30 mins or untill done.
  • I serve with a veggie on side and mashed potatoes with white peppered gravy. I always serve extra gravy to dip chicken inches.

    I have made this recipe twice now. The first time I followed the recipe exactly with one minor change. As a previous reviewer noted, I drizzled a little butter in with the cornflakes. It came out fabulous! The second time I made it exactly the same but added 1/8 to 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese and a little oregano. I was entertaining my Italian friends. They raved about the chicken. Both ways, it was so tasty and moist. Thank you for this recipe I will be adding it to my regular dinner menu.

    This is an exceptional chicken recipe. The only thing different I did was to use seasoned salt instead of poultry seasoning. AWESOME!

    Delicious, easy & super quick to make. I didn't use eggs & it still was perfect! I crushed cereal real well n it stuck perfectly to the thawed & sliced chicken. I served w steamed veggies & curry seasoned potatoe wedges. Great recipe. Thanks!

    I used skinless, boneless chicken thighs. Instead of poultry seasoning, I made up my own blend with a bunch of stuff I had in my pantry, and then just processed it right in the food processor with the corn flakes. Instead of adding the butter to the corn flakes, I let it cool slightly after melting, and then added the egg to it. Dipped the chicken in the egg butter mix, then in the corn flake mix. It was delicious, and got two thumbs up from two very picky teenagers!

    Instead of mixing the cornflakes with the butter, pour the butter on the already coated breasts. Don't pour too much to keep the coating from getting soggy.

    My friends dad made this when we were Young and I have been wanting to make it for years. Just wish I did sooner, it was like being at that table all over again. The butter and simple seasonings make it homey and delicious. Total comfort food! Great recipe.
