Baked chicken with cornflakes and cheese

Somehow I had lost track of this recipe over the years. My bad. It is one of our favorite chicken recipes. Maximum flavor, easy, and delicious!

I went through all my recipe files recently and found it. Am I glad I did! I almost always have chicken, shredded cheese, and cornflakes on hand so it was an easy decision this week when I was contemplating, “What’s for dinner?”

If you like a baked chicken recipe that you can throw together with minimal effort, this is a great one to try.



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

-In a medium bowl, mix the cornflake crumbs and Cheddar cheese.

-Dip the chicken breasts in the melted butter, milk, and garlic powder mixture. Then roll them in the cornflake crumb and cheese. Place chicken in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish.

-Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

This is an easy, delicious way to prepare baked chicken. It’s also juicy and tender. I served the chicken with roasted Brussel sprouts and parmesan roasted potatoes. Yum!

Americans eat a record 93 pounds of chicken per person each year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. So here’s to the chickens who may get a reprieve as we approach Thanksgiving when the turkey takes center stage.
