Why is this corn flakes baked chicken so good? Our family loves it! ohsweetbasil.com

A few weeks ago I was making our Funeral Potatoes (yes, people in Utah actually call cheesy potato casserole funeral potatoes. Weird, but delicious.) which were so yummy, but then I was left with a whole blasted box of corn flakes. What else do you make with corn flakes? But seriously, leave me a comment because I still have half a box! Anyway, I asked on facebook and a few of you said that you make chicken with a corn flakes crust. Whaaaat? Corn flakes baked chicken it is.
