Cornflake Crusted Chicken


I’m always looking for new ways to mix up chicken breasts. I think most people can agree that chicken breasts are one of the easiest and most versatile protein sources to turn to.


So when I came across this recipe via a Foodbuzz friend, I bookmarked it immediately – I even had a box of gluten-free cornflakes in the cabinet so it was perfect.


Cornflake Crusted Chicken

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 halves boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup cornflakes
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Marinate chicken in milk for about an hour. Turn the meat occasionally so it can marinate evenly. Crush cornflakes and put it into a freezer bag along with pepper, salt, paprika and garlic powder. Shake to mix evenly. Line casserole dish with aluminum foil and brush with 1 Tbsp oil.

Remove the meat from the marinade. Put each piece of meat into the bag with cornflakes and spices and shake well. Put meat on a foil and sprinkle each piece with 1/2 Tbsp oil. Bake in a preheated oven on 200°C for about 25 minutes or until the meat is done.


Better than Shake n’ Bake!


We really liked the crunch of the chicken and it was pretty peppery!
