Cornflake Chicken

Here is a delicious recipe I got inspired to make this weekend.  There really are no measurements.  You just need to have the following ingredients:

  • Gluten free cornflakes
  • Chicken breast or whatever part you prefer
  • 1 Egg
  • Sea Salt
  • Cracked Pepper
  • Favorite spices
  • about a cup of sour cream
  • tablespoon honey (optional)
egg, sour cream, salt & pepper, spices, honey (whisk all together until a nice sauce consistency)

crushed cornflakes (you can put in a baggy and yield a rolling pin over the flakes until crushed consistency you desire)

Dip chicken into wet mixture and then roll in crumbs on a flat plate.  Drizzle with melted butter and fry in olive oil designed for high temperatures or bake.

Baking Instructions: 375 for at least an hour.  Cut a piece open to make sure all pink is gone and chicken is completely cooked through.  This is absolutely divine with the honey mustard dipping sauce.

Bon Apetit

OK Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!  That is just a funny saying but it means that this dish was a huge hit with the entire family.  I cut the kids portions into strips and gave them the honey mustard dipping sauce.  They were commenting the whole time with "mmm" and this is "so good".  Sunday dinner was definitely comforting especially after the wild weather we had yesterday.

edited to add: I ran low on the corn flakes so I had some other gluten free cereal that were shaped like cheerios.  I just combined those with the corn flakes and crushed it altogether.  I think it was even better than having only cornflakes because I had done a test batch the day before and comparing the two, I liked yesterday's version even better.  So you can experiment with using any cereal as the coating.

One last tip is when you dip the chicken to let it drip quite a bit before placing in the crumbs.  This will prevent the crumbs from getting too soggy before you are done making all your pieces.
