Corn Flake Chicken.

This is my very favorite chicken recipe.

Corn flake chicken.

I’m a picky eater.  I don’t actually like meat (of any kind).  But this chicken dish is all crunch and garlic powder, which overtakes the chicken taste, and I love it.

Here’s what you’ll need:



  • 1 lb thin-sliced chicken breasts
  • 2 cups corn flakes
  • 1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 stick butter

Preheat the oven to 350.

CFC 02

Start by grinding up two cups of corn flakes.  My method is to dump them into a pie plate…

CFC 03

…and use a bowl (like a mortar and pestle) to grind them.

CFC 04

How finely you want to grind them is up to you; I try to avoid too much powder, but don’t leave any flakes whole.

CFC 05

Add garlic powder, salt, and pepper, to taste.  I like a lot of garlic powder.  (Like, a lot.  Picture clouds of pale powder puffing up as I toss the flakes to mix it all up.  So. Good.)

CFC 06

Mix the spices thoroughly into the corn flakes.

CFC 07

Melt the stick of butter in a bowl or shallow dish.  (I melt it in the bowl I used as a pestle for the corn flakes; I’m all about fewer dirty dishes!)

CFC 08

Next, set up your assembly line!

I intentionally use thin-sliced chicken for this recipe because I like the corn flake-to-chicken ratio to be as high as possible.  I’ve tried it with larger chicken breasts, and it just isn’t as good!  I’ve stopped buying thin-sliced for everything else, to save money, but this one is worth the higher price.

CFC 09

Dip (and submerge) each piece of chicken into the butter.

CFC 10

Coat it with the corn flake mixture.  (I roll it around a few times, then pile corn flakes on top of each side and press them into the chicken to get as much as possible to stick!)

CFC 11

Arrange the coated chicken in the baking dish.

CFC 12

Once they’re arranged, I sprinkle any remaining corn flakes over the whole dish, and pour a little bit of the leftover butter in for good measure (I love butter…).

CFC 13

Pop it in the oven, and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.

Delicious golden goodness…
