Where did the month of June go? I had grand plans to share more recipes using cereal last month, but somehow I couldn’t find the time to actually compose the posts. I did the cooking, but I’m guessing my week-long beach vacation had something to do with time just slipping away from me.
When I was given the task to create recipes using Kellogg’s cereals, my husband wanted me to share his recipe for Corn Flake Chicken. This is actually a recipe from his mom that he has adapted to suite our tastes.
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups Kellogg’s Corn Flakes
- 1 cup potato flakes
- 1 tablespoon Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning
- non-stick cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 365 degrees.
- Melt butter in a large skillet on the stove. Cook chicken in skillet with melted butter until each side is white (there will still be a pink strip throughout the center).
- Crush the Corn Flakes. I like to let the kids help with this part. There are a variety of ways to crush the Corn Flakes, but I like to use a plastic baggy and rolling pin since it’s easier for the children and usually makes less of a mess. Add potato flakes and Tony’s to Corn Flake mixture.
- Spray 9×13 pan with non-stick spray. Thoroughly coat chicken breasts in Corn Flakes mixture.
- Place coated chicken in 9×13 pan leaving enough room on each side so that the heat can penetrate the chicken evenly. Pour remaining butter over the coated chicken breasts. Then pour the remaining corn flake mixture over coated chicken breasts.
- Cover pan with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 7-8 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
^^ This little guy like to help! ^^
The Corn Flakes give the chicken a nice little crunch, while the Tony’s adds just the right amount of seasoning. You don’t need a list of 15 ingredients to make a meal that tastes good and I think this recipe shows that.
I thoroughly enjoy when the hubby takes control in the kitchen! Especially when I get good food like this.
Have you cooked with cereal before? If so, what did you make?
