    This was very easy and the corn flake crumbs made it very delicious. My husband and kids loved it! I will make it again and again.

    I have been maing Corn Flake Chicken for years. Instead of using the salt, pepper and cayenne, I simply use a powdered ranch salad dressing envelope for a zingy flavor. I combine the mix directly with the crushed cornflakes, and then dip and bake as instructed above!

    I thought it was a wonderful alternative to fried chicken!

    Very easy to prepare. The cornflakes add a nice crunch and flavor. Did not use the cayenne as kids don't like things to spicy but it would be interesting to use.

    Chicken done in cornflakes is delicious and also nice and crunchy. Very easy dish to prepare. i did not add the cayenne.

    I used the bran flakes too. Yummy! Next time, I may not add the cayenne (or just a little less). It was good but I'd prefer less of a kick.

    I use bran flakes to add some extra fiber.
