Corn Flakes Baked Chicken

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.

I’m going to be honest here, I thought it was going to be the pits. I was imagining gross little chicken nuggets,  but I was wrong!!!!!! Why is cereal on chicken good? Like, real good.

My gosh, this world is a mess. Corn flakes on chicken, bacon on donuts, what’s next fish and cheese? Gag.

Are Corn Flakes Gluten Free?

Corn Flakes cereal, a breakfast favorite, includes “malt flavoring” as its third ingredient.

Malt is made from barley which contains gluten.

Because of the malt flavoring in corn flakes, they are not gluten free.

Can Chicken Be Eaten Cold?

Chicken that has been kept cold after cooking is safe to eat cold.

  • Thanks for sharing!
    Love that you use the actual cereal rather than the already ground corn flakes that they sell in the store (which are good in a pinch)
    There are sooo many variations that can be done with cornflakes and chicken (I have been making 100s for years)
    I add parm cheese, I use garlic powder, hot pepper flakes, any kind of seasoning that works with chicken (which is basically most)
    I also sometimes coat the chicken in low fat mayo and then dip in the cornflakes with seasoning……..fabulous………
    You can dip in traditional eggs too
    So many options, if people just use their imagination they will be all set!
