Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cornflake crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Cheddar cheese, garlic salt, Creole seasoning, and cayenne pepper. Pour melted butter into a shallow dish. Coat each chicken breast with melted butter, and then roll in the crumb mixture. Place coated chicken into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake uncovered for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until chicken is no longer pink, and the juices run clear.

Delicious! I did make a couple changes though based on what I had on hand. I did not have any cornflakes and could not get to the store, so I used crushed cheez-it crackers (the cheddar/parmesan duo variety). Also, I used only half the amount of butter and 1 egg white. Overall, the chicken was a bit salty, but I think that was because I used the crackers instead of cornflakes. If I did it the same way again, I would omit the garlic salt and replace it with garlic powder. I also cooked it on a rack placed on top of a baking sheet so the bottom would not get soggy. It worked pretty well. I will definitely make this again.

This was good, quick and easy. All requirements in my book. I didn't have corn flakes, so used cracker crumbs. It came out a little salt, but I suspect that was my fault. I used 1/2 the butter to dredge the chicken and poured the rest over the chicken before baking. I also turned chicken 1/2 way through cooking, but didn't find it helped all that much to crisp the other side. My breasts took about 30 minutes to bake and were perfect.

I used panko bread crumbs instead of cornflakes. I used low fat mayo instead of butter to cut calories. This was easy and better than fried chicken with less mess. The cayenne pepper gave it a great kick. I will be making this often.
