Pretty, right? (sarcasm) This is such an old picture…I really should update it. Maybe someday, but not today. Anyways, crunchy cornflake chicken! It is delicious, it is crunchy, it is better than breadcrumbs.
Note: I used 6 chicken thighs and only one cup of crushed flakes. Delicious!
Cornflake-Crusted Baked Chicken
4 bone-in, skinless chicken drumsticks
4 bone-in skinless chicken thighs
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 large egg
2 cups crushed cornflakes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 400°. Rinse chicken, and pat dry. Season generously with salt and pepper.
2. In a small bowl, whisk egg with 1 tablespoon water. In a large bowl, mix cornflakes with oil, cayenne, and 1 teaspoon salt.
3. Working with one piece of chicken at a time, dip chicken in egg mixture, then coat with seasoned cornflakes, pressing flakes to help them adhere. Transfer coated pieces to a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until golden brown and crisp, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper before serving.
