Delicious and perfectly crunchy. Only change from the recipe was to used seasoned salt in the crumbs and we cooked the chicken for an hour since it wasn't quite thawed all the way. Next time might use less milk with the egg to make it a little thicker. Read More

It was decent but it lacked seasoning. I recommend putting the seasoning on the chicken then putting it in the milk mixture then cornflakes or after dipping it in the milk mixture add extra seasoning directly on chicken. I also did not use chicken breast but drumsticks. Overall it was good and if you're not using chicken breasts I recommend adding an extra 15 minutes baking time to get the corn flakes to be crispy on the chicken skin. Read More

The family loved it! I took someone elses suggestion and mixed the spices in a separate bowl and sprinkled directly onto the chicken after dreading in the milk mixture. (I added 1 TBSP of corn meal to the milk & flour...made it a little thicker) Also to the spices I added 1/4 tsp onion powder and a tsp of sugar to sweeten it up a bit! Be sure to REALLY crunch up the Corn Flakes too I even poured the remainder of the flakes on the chicken before popping in the oven. I had REALLY huge bone in chicken breasts (which I removed the skin) and an hour at 375 was perfect! Chicken was juicy and flakes were perfectly golden brown!! Yummy.. Will add to our monthly rotation!!! Great with mashed potatoes corn and corn bread.... Read More

I enjoyed this recipe. Very simple. I used boneless skinless breasts. Sprinkled Parmesan on the top before baking. Read More

I'm trying to eat healthier. So I was googling a substitute for fried chicken. When I came across this recipe for baked fried chicken. I know right off the back that I was going to need more seasoning. Than the recipe called for. I Can't tell you how much seasoning I used because I didn't measure it. But can I tell you the following seasonings I used.(Paprika pepper seasoning salt garlic powder and Ms. dash salt free original blend. I seasoned the chicken breast and the milk mixture.I will be making this again but with a little more adjustments here and there. Read More

I'll make it again but it REALLY needs tweaking. Don't ever mix dry ingredients like flour directly into liquid. I wasted a lot of time blending the eggs milk FLOUR and especially GARLIC POWDER with my blender. Instead the garlic powder needs to be thoroughly mixed in with corn flakes not into the liquid. By the time all was done there was NO garlic flavor in the dish whatsoever. And really no need for flour either. (For even better flavor add a bit of melted butter into liquid) Read More

This was really good. I put the cornflakes in my food processor and processed for a couple of seconds just to break flakes up a bit. Seasoned the milk and egg mixture. Did not use flour and did not need it. Everyone cleaned their plates! A keeper for sure! Read More
