Chicken With Cornflake Crust
How to make cornflake crusted chicken fillet fingers with a dip with ingredients and easy instructions
This simple but tasty chicken with cornflake crust recipe is adapted from Breakfast for Dinner: Recipes for Frittata Florentine, Huevos Rancheros, Sunny-Side Up Burgers, and More!, by Lindsay Landis and has been used here with kind permission. The cereal ingredient gives the poultry a lovely satisfying crunch and the dip intensifies the flavour.

This will make enough for four people and takes about 45 minutes to prepare and make.
8 tablespoons of plain flour
Three quarters of a teaspoon of salt
Half a teaspoon of pepper
3 cups of finely crushed cornflakes and 1 cup of partially crushed cornflakes
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons of dried parsley
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of dried dill
About 680g of boneless skinless fillets cut into generous strips or fingers
For the dip:
See our buttermilk dressing recipe page.
How To Make:
Preheat the oven to 400F. Cover a baking sheet with aluminium foil and set a heatproof wire baking rack on top and spray the rack lightly with cooking spray.
In a small bowl or shallow dish, season flour with a quarter teaspoon of salt and pepper. Whisk the eggs in another shallow dish. In a third shallow dish mix the cornflakes with the parsley, garlic, dill, the remaining half a teaspoon of salt and the remaining quarter of a teaspoon of pepper.
Put the poultry into the flour mixture to coat each strip and shake off the excess. Then dip them into the egg and then the cornflakes mixture until all their surface is coated. Arrange them onto the prepared baking rack.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until they become golden brown and cooked through. You need to turn them over just once.
Serve with the buttermilk ranch sauce for dipping.
Lindsay suggests that those on a budget use a whole breast between two layers of cling film, pound it to an even half inch thickness and then slice into strips.
