“This is a great recipe for those that like the crispiness of fried chicken, but don't want all of the greasiness!”

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C); grease a 9x12 inch baking dish.
  2. Place the cereal in a large plastic zipper bag and crush the cereal into crumbs. Add the garlic salt and seasoned salt; shake the mixture together in the bag to combine. Pour the cereal crumb mixture out into a shallow bowl.
  3. In another shallow bowl, beat the egg with the milk. Dip each chicken breast half into the milk mixture, then into the crumb mixture, coating the chicken well with crumbs. Place the coated chicken breasts into the prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cereal coating is golden brown, the chicken is no longer pink in the center, and the juices run clear, about 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I've been making this for years, I learned it from Mom. If you don't have Chex brand cereal you can use crushed corn flakes or Rice Krispies. Mom sometimes used half flour and half crushed cereal. I suggest if you are looking to cut down on the salt, you use your favorite brand of seasoning salt and garlic powder. I also use evaporated milk because I like a thicker coating on my fried chicken. This adapts well to whatever you have on hand and you can always double it and keep a batch in a ziplock bag for days you're short on time.



Substituted Cornflakes as I did not have Chex cereal. Both my husband and my 3 year old son liked it. My husband took one bite and said it tastes like fried chicken.



Very good and easy recipe. I cut up a whole chicken and this recipe was just enough to coat all the chicken pieces. Did cut the salt down to ½ teaspoon and added 2 ½ of Mrs Dash Seasoning! The final change was the cereal, because I did not have rice cereal; used half Corn Flakes and Cheerios!
