Crispy Cornflake Chicken

Crispy Cornflake Chicken

Ever wondered what to do with that cornflake dust at the bottom of the packet? If you eat it like cereal its all stodgy – which I hate. This is a much better alternative with pretty surprising results.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tb Mayonnaise
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp ground green chilli (use less if you don’t like it hot)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • a good squeeze of lemon juice
  • Cornflake dust + extra crushed cornflakes for coating

Method:

  1. Cut each chicken breast horizontally in 3 pieces.
  2. Mix the rest of ingredients and marinate chicken pieces overnight or for a few hours.
  3. Coat each piece of marinated chicken in the cornflakes. Drizzle 1 Tb of oil over the coated chicken.
  4. Place in an oven tray and bake in the oven until the chicken is cooked.
  5. Serve with my sweet curried pasta salad.

Tips:

Freeze half of this to use for another day. You can fry the chicken or bake them whichever you prefer. It has a southern vibe – would be great in a burger!

Step by Step

1.Marinating cut pieces of chicken in mayonnaise, green chilli, white/black pepper and lemon juice.

2. Coat each piece in crushed cornflakes.

3. I only used 1tablespoon of oil too cook 1/2 of the chicken pieces.

4. Use a non stick baking sheet, therefore less washing up Capetonians!
