Recipe Time! Cornflake Chicken Strips

I did it! I made it to 10 miles and it only took about a week to get back up there! I could not be happier. Well...I will be happier once I get to this Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z concert tonight in Hershey, PA. That will be a post in itself though!

For today's blog, I am going to give you guys a recipe from a meal I enjoyed last night. Enjoy!

Now, we all love having a breaded chicken breast. But here's a mix up on a traditional recipe. Switch out your bread crumbs for crushed cornflakes! It gives your chicken a crunch that only this classic breakfast cereal will provide! It's so simple and your whole family will love it!

  • 1 lb Skinless, Boneless Chicken Breast, Cut Into Strips
  • Seasonings to Taste (We used crushed red pepper, chipotle powder, garlic powder)
  • 1 Egg, Slightly Beaten
  • 2 C. Cornflakes, Finely Crushed
  1. Cut chicken into 3-by-3/4-inch strips. Place in ziplock bag with desired seasonings. Allow to marinate (you can skip this step and simply add any seasonings directly to chicken).
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Then, in a shallow dish whisk egg until yoke and white well mixed. In another dish, add cornflake crumbs.
  3. Dip marinated chicken strips into the egg mixture; roll in cornflake crumbs to coat. Arrange chicken strips on an ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake for12 minutes, or until outsides are golden and chicken is not pink in center.

This dish was beyond easy and it was yummy. With the leftovers, we were able to enjoy the chicken on a whole wheat tortilla wrap with veggies. The cornflakes did not stay crunchy, but that didn't make it any less enjoyable.  So if you want crunchy cornflakes, eat them soon after they are finished baking.

I give this meal an 8 because of it's simplicity and flavor. After marinating, this meal was ready to serve in no time!
