This is the first time I have used corn flakes (crushed them up in the mini food processor), I used 3 chicken breasts (weighed just under 600 grams) which was more than enough for 3 of us and with some left over for sandwiches. I also sprayed the tray in which I cooked them as well as the top of the pieces, it was really easy to bring together and baked for 30 minutes at 170C fan forced. Thank you Nif for a lovely crunchy chicken nuggets recipe, made for Went to Market tag game.
I make these all the time as I am on a low fat diet.I sub 1/4 c bread crumbs for the cereal and they are delicious.I sometimes add parmesan cheese.Hubby likes them as well with low fat ranch dressing to dip.If in a kicked up mood I will also add hot sauce and italian seasoning.These are very good and thank you for the recipe that is so changeable.I bake them 30 mins at 350 and they are perfect.
I KNOW these would be worthy of 5 stars if made as directed, which is why I'm awarding them. I've been cooking dairy and gluten free for my daughter lately. I tried these with 2 substitutions - one worked and the other didn't. I used gluten-free corn flakes - which seemed to work/crisp up great. I also tried to replace regular yogurt with soy yogurt. That did not work very well, because the soy taste was too much. Next time, I may try a dairy-free coconut yogurt or just use egg whites. I cannot wait to try these again and confirm my 5 star rating! Thank you for such a yummy recipe idea. :)<br/><br/>Update: I tried them again, as written this time. These are delicious! I wanted to confirm the 5 star rating. :)

I love great food and I particularly like trying cuisines new to me! Although I don't prepare as much food as I used to, creating in my kitchen is still one of my favourite things to do. Enjoy!
