I dampen the chicken with water (you could use milk or whatever if you prefer) first. Then I put a couple of cups of corn flakes into a gallon size Ziploc bag and crush 'em with a rolling pin or whatever's on hand. I add some garlic powder, pepper, onion powder, basil, etc. (whatever spices you like).
Then I put the chicken in there one piece at a time, zip the bag closed, and shake till completely coated. Do this with all your chicken pieces, and bake at about 350 in a Pam-coated pan.
It tastes pretty good. I had to do something with all those free boxes of corn flakes I got with coupons. :laugh:
1 cup corn flake crumbs
1 T. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dried basil, crushed
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Store in a resealable plastic baggie.
To serve: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place seasoning mix in a large plastic baggie. Moisten chicken pieces with water and drop them into the bag, two or three pieces at a time. Twist bag closed and shake to coat pieces evenly. Place coated chicken pieces on a foil-lined rimmed cookie sheet. Bake for about 45 minutes, until cooked through.
