Cornflake Chicken Recipe

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • about 1.25 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts cutlets (this was 9 pieces for me)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika (regular paprika may be substituted)
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup cornflakes, crushed
  • 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons lite soy sauce
  • 1 heaping tablespoon chili garlic sauce , or to taste (sriracha may be substituted)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, to taste


Preheat oven to 425F, line a baking sheet with foil, spray with cooking spray; set aside.
Evenly season the chicken with the salt, pepper, smoked paprika; set aside.

To a medium bowl, add the flour. To a separate medium bowl, add the eggs and lightly beat. To a third medium/large bowl add the cornflakes (I crushed them in my fist), panko, and stir to combine.
Dredge one piece of chicken through the flour, shaking off the excess. Dip in the egg and dredge through the cornflake-panko mixture. Press the mixture on fairly thick. Place chicken on prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining pieces.
Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until crust is lightly golden and chicken is cooked through in the center, about 165F. Flip once midway through to ensure even cooking. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of chicken pieces, how much coating you pressed on, oven variances, etc. While chicken cooks, prepared the sauce.
To a small bowl add the honey, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, and whisk to combine. Taste sauce and make any necessary flavor adjustments if necessary.
Remove chicken from the oven, evenly drizzle the sauce over chicken to taste, optionally garnish with parsley, and serve immediately. Chicken is best warm and fresh but extra will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 5 days, noting it will lose its crispiness as time passes.
