Oven-Fried Cajun Chicken Breasts

Quick and yummy variation on the oven fried chicken breast theme. Increase the Cajun seasoning if you like your food spicy. The amount prescribed is based on my kids' preference, which is for flavor, but not too much heat. Time does not include marinating time (optional).

Take one piece of chicken at a time out of the buttermilk, place in coating bag and shake to coat evenly. Place on a baking sheet or stoneware pan. repeat with remaining chicken. Lightly spritz each piece with nonstick vegetable spray or an olive oil spray. Bake at 425 F for 20-25 minutes.

    These were so good!!! We planned on making bone-in breasts, but after realizing all I had was boneless breasts, I decided to use this recipe. And I am so glad I did! The only thing I did differently was to put the chicken on a rack on a cookie sheet to keep the bottoms from getting soggy. But the cornflakes made for a crispy coating and the seasoning was delicious!!! Thanks for posting such a yummy, delicious recipe...I can't wait to try it with tenders for chicken strips...yum!
