Baked Cornflake Crusted Chicken Strips

Baked Cornflake Crusted Chicken Strips

Watch the video for this recipe:

Why make fried chicken when the baked one looks and taste soo incredible good.  Definitely a healthier alternative,  the chicken remain moist inside and really crispy and crunchy on the outside due to the cornflakes crust. You can add various spices to the cornflakes mixture like garlic or chili powder or various herbs. It's so easy to prepare it that it would be a shame not to do these baked cornflake crusted chicken strips at home for whenever you are craving for some. No more guilt involved :)

The best part is that kids love them and this is a good recipe to alternate so they don't get bored.  You can replace chicken with turkey breast if you prefer best.


Dip the chicken strips in your favorite sauce, I would recommend my Chilli Jam which is a perfect addition to this chicken as it is a a bit sweet and spicy...mmm - what a great combination.

I recently found your blog and everything looks so good! I made these chicken strips tonight for dinner, along with your baked potato wedges - DELISH!!! Both my husband and I are a big fan. Other recipes I've tried usually turn out a little bland, but both recipes are good with or without dipping sauce. Thanks for the new fav!

Thank you Erica for your nice review. I am so happy both recipes turned right for. Stay in touch.. more recipes will come:)

I am really looking forward to trying these.... I really don't like Parsley so can you suggest a different herb? Would Basil work? this is my favourite herb.

Sure.. basil can work really well if you like it so much. Any herb can go well if you enjoy it's taste.

Crazy little twist if you're a fan of Chicken and Waffles. Use Waffle Crisp cereal. Dont discount the idea until you've tried it.

I am sure it will be delicious with Waffle Crisp Cereals too.
