Corn Flake Crusted Chicken Breasts

If you are a regular follower of the blog you know I don’t make anything fancy, I like the ingredients to be simple, using things I already have on hand. I have seen recipes where you  coat your chicken with mayonnaise before you bread them. I thought I would try it and see how  it works out.  I breaded the chicken with corn flakes because I always have a box or two around. You can get a box of corn flakes for less then a dollar if you are a frugal shopper like me 🙂 With a sale and a coupon that is doubled, that makes for a great deal. Add a few spices and you’re good to go.

You’ll need:

2- 3 chicken breasts ( I used bone-in skinless chicken breasts )

1/4 cup mayonnaise ( I used Mayonnaise made with olive oil )

3 cups corn flakes ( depend on amount of chicken used )

1/2  teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

fresh ground pepper

sea salt

I put my corn flakes in a plastic bag and crushed them with a rolling pin.

Add all the dry spices and mix.

Empty the corn flake mixture into a glass pie pan. You can coat it in the bag if you’d rather. I prefer to do it in a flat pan. 🙂

Lightly coat your chicken with mayonnaise. Don’t over coat the chicken, it will make the breading soggy.

Evenly coat the whole piece of chicken with corn flakes and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.


Bake at 425 until  165 F. It took about 50 minutes for my bone-in. 20 -30 minutes for boneless.

It comes out nice and crispy. The mayonnaise makes the crumbs stick and the chicken very moist. We loved it.

 I share at these parties.

    cornflakes are such a great breading for chicken! i make chicken tenders with them, love it!

    They sound yummy. I have found that chicken breasts with the bone in are much more flavorful and tender. They used to be a lot less expensive but that isn’t always the case these days. I will try this! Thanks!

    This is one of my childhood favorites. I don’t think my mom used cayenne pepper though – what a great variation! I really need to make this for my kids.
