Corn Flake Crumb Chicken

      This one is an oldie but a goody.  My mom grew up eating it, I grew up eating it, Jax will probably grow up eating it if he ever decides to like chicken.  This kid of mine is strange!  He will eat pork loin and pork chops, hamburger... but the tiniest bit of chicken will get spit out.  He doesn't even eat chicken in nugget form.  What kid doesn't like nuggets?  He will try to drink the honey mustard and leave the nuggets!  Not that I really mind that he doesn't like nuggets, really.  It just doesn't seem right!

Anyway, if you have never had corn flake crumb chicken, the crumbs form a nice crisp crust and the chicken stays moist and delicious.  It is baked, so it is easy to make and it is so yummy!

Corn Flake Crumb Chicken


Chicken leg quarters (about 5)
1 cup corn flake crumbs (you can buy them already crumbed and just the right texture)
1/2 T seasoned salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 egg
1 T milk

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F
  2. In shallow bowl, mix together the egg and milk.
  3. In another bowl, mix corn flake crumbs and seasonings. 
  4. Dip chicken quarters in egg mixture and then the crumb mixture, making sure the coat the whole chicken piece.
  5. Place on greased baking sheet and bake until crisp and golden brown (about 45 minutes to an hour).  Use an instant read thermometer to ensure the chicken is fully cooked. 


  1. Hi! Visiting form Funtastic Friday. Your chicken looks so yummy! I tried a recipe with cornflakes before but I must have done something wrong because it did not turn out very well. I will give it another try with your recipe! Thanks for sharing!
