"My family definitely enjoyed this recipe. As another review noted, I did need to use a lot more cornflakes then were called for, and I took the advice of everyone and spiced it up a bit. It was much more delicious than I was expecting, and even warmed up in the microwave as leftovers to satisfaction. Plus my children had a lot of fun getting their hands icky helping me make it!"


1/2 cup All-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon Table salt
1/8 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
3 ounces Buttermilk
3/4 cup Cornflake crumbs
1 pound Boneless skinless chicken breast(s); four 4-oz pieces, (uncooked)

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Preheat oven to 365F. Lightly coat an 8 X 8 X 2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

Combine flour, salt and cayenne pepper together in a medium-size bowl. Place buttermilk and corn flakes crumbs in 2 separate shallow bowls.

Roll chicken breast halves in flour mixture and evenly coat each side. Next dip chicken into buttermilk and then corn flakes crumbs.

Place coated chicken breasts in prepared baking dish. Bake until chicken is tender and no longer pink, about 20 minutes (there is no need to flip the chicken during baking). Yields 1 breast per serving.

It's was good but lacking in flavor. A little extra salt does go a long way though.
