NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 to 3 shakes hot sauce, such as Tabasco, optional
  • 1 cup buttermilk, well shaken
  • 4 cups cornflake crumbs
  • 8 assorted chicken pieces, skin on
  • Salt and pepper
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray the foil with cooking spray.

Shake the hot sauce into the buttermilk and pour into a shallow dish. Place the cornflake crumbs in another shallow dish. Dip each piece of chicken in the buttermilk, and then roll it in the crumbs. Place the coated chicken pieces on the cookie sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Bake the chicken until the crust is golden brown and the meat is no longer pink at the bone, about 1 hour. Check this with the point of a sharp knife. Remove the pieces from the pan and serve while the chicken is warm.

Made this but used egg whites instead of buttermilk and added salt pepper and a little onion powder and it was amazing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My daughter requested this for her birthday dinner. It is the first dish she ever cooked when she was 8. And she is now 34! This was terrific! Everyone loved it. Added a little more hot sauce which gave the chicken some serious heft. The buttermilk is great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been making variations of this recipe for many years .... always a big success. The person who thought it was gross just isn't much of a cook .. . . .if you can't say something nice, don't say it, because no one cares. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Use rice krispy's they work better and you can make a better crust with them! even if it is only topped crispy chicken it has a MUCH better flavor! Did this because I wanted to make cornflake chicken and all I had was rice kirspy's and was was too broke to go buy corn flakes. So good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a good recipe. You have to season both the chicken and corn flakes. I added seasoning salt, garlic powder and black pepper. Poultry is bland so you have to put some flavor on it. Most importantly, you have to cook it on a wire rack if you don't want the bottom to be so mushy, so that the heat can get underneath. I used a cooling rack to bake on and it worked just as fine and sprayed it with cooking spray and set on top of the baking sheet. I did 4 thighs, 1/2 c buttermilk, dashes of hot sauce and let it marinate for an hour or so.  Baked it for 40-45 min. It was crunchy, flavorful and very appealing to the eye. Note: don't leave the flakes so big, make sure to crush them almost finely. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you Ms. Trisha for your dish on corn flake chicken. as soon as I saw it I had to make it. I have to watch out for food because I am a diabetic. when you add sugar or starches I just use less so my blood sugar does shot up. I love watching you on TV. item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVED this chicken !! I did omit the hot sauce though since we do not like hot spicy food. Also I added a little salt, pepper and onion powder to the corn flake crumbs. LOVE Trisha's recipes !!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Dry and flavorless - very disappointed - it looked so yummy on TV-I used both skinless boneless thighs & breasts,marinated for 6 hours item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been making variations of this recipe for years and grew up eating this too. Good recipe. Try adding garlic powder and for added zing some parmesan cheese - the KRAFT one in the big bottle. It's Oinkilicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We loved the recipe. I made with boneless, skinless chicken strips and it was quite tasty and worked fine. Dipped in honey mustard. It was a quick, easy weekday dinner. item not reviewed by moderator and published
