    Default Weekly Healthy Recipe (4/11 - 4/17)

    This reminds me of fried chicken, except it's baked, and it's healthy! The chicken turns out so tender! Enjoy

    PS:
    Make sure you use chicken breast only or it won't turn out quite right

    Cornflake Crusted Chicken Breasts


    March 12, 2011TEKST NA SRPSKOM

    Cornflake Crusted Chicken Breasts
    100 ml milk (I just covered mine in milk*)
    2 halves boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 500 g)
    30 g (1 cup*) cornflakes
    1/2 tsp ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp paprika
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    400 g carrots
    1/2 tsp dried parsley leaves
    3 Tbsp oil
    coarse sea salt

    Marinate chicken in milk for about an hour. Turn the meat occasionally so it can marinate evenly. Crush cornflakes and put it into a freezer bag along with pepper, salt, paprika and garlic powder. Shake to mix evenly. Line casserole dish with aluminum foil and brush with 1 Tbsp oil.

    Remove the meat from the marinade. Put each piece of meat into the bag with cornflakes and spices and shake well. Put meat on foil and sprinkle each piece with 1/2 Tbsp oil. Bake in a preheated oven on 200°C (395 degrees Fahrenheit*) for about 25 minutes (30 minutes seemed ideal for me*) or until the meat is done.

    Cook carrot, drain and transfer into a serving bowl. Coat with 1 Tbsp oil and dried parsley. Add salt to taste.

    I am making this on Friday. Believe it or not, I have to buy cornflakes and carrots. HAHAHAHA!!!
    I love how this is so easy, and it seems very similar to things that I cook regularly, just with a twist!

    I actually made this last week and it was delish! It took a little longer to cook the chicken though. Maybe because the chicken breasts were huge? I loved the carrots as well...I've never boiled carrots before so I was a bit skeptical at first but it turned out to be very yummy. My hubby loved the carrots!

    I will be making this again...it was so easy to make! The only down side for me is that we don't eat corn flakes around here so now I have a huge box of corn flakes! I ended up making oven baked chicken tenders and oven baked french fries a few night later to use some of the corn flakes again.

    OK, so I didn't get to make this last week due to a WHOLE BUCH O'CRAP! So my mom, and grand parents came by last night and I made this dinner. I LOVED it!!! I loved the simplicity of it. The carrots were YUMMO!!!! I only cooked them until they were uncrisp, but not mushy. They were a hit among the kids too.

    I'm wondering what marinating the chicken in the milk does. This chicken was very moist, and usually mine is dry. Either it was the milk, or I have been overcooking the chicken. Anyway, this meal is going in my recipe box!!!

    I made this recipe a couple of weeks ago too, and thought it was mos def a keeper. The only thing was, I accidentally grabbed chicken thighs instead of breasts (I think I'm why Mary put on the disclaimer to only use chicken breasts LOL) and the dark meat with the milk made kind of a weird texture, but I could tell that it would make white meat very tender, and I thought that the seasonings were excellent!

    I may make this one again tomorrow night.

    I finally made this last night! It was good, I really liked the chicken and my husband commented that it was very good (he hardly ever gives compliments). I was having a really blah day and nothing was really tasting very good to me all day, and the carrots almost made me wanna puke , but I'm pretty sure it's cuz of my day LOL . I even told DD that it was chicken nuggets, and she ate a little bit of it

    Lisa - I'm convinced it's marinating it in the MILK that makes the chicken so tender.


    Mmmmm I am so wanting to make this again, but I've changed my diet and am avoiding processed foods and anything with high fructose corn syrup now (which the Cornflakes has), so I'm wondering if I could use something else besides the CF's and it be as good? I want it to be something lower in carbs, too. Hmmmm, maybe some cereal made from sprouted grain or spelt from the health food store?

    Mary,

    I make something similar to this with saltine crackers.....not sure if that is helpful to you or not?

    I am very late posting this but hey, I have a newborn that is nursing every 2 hours and that is my excuse for not getting anything done I have made a simpler version of this recipe for a couple of years (ie only cornflakes, no seasonings or oil). I tried it this way and my family was split on which way was better. I personally like it better without all of the seasonings because you can taste the cornflakes better. I also cooked it with extra cornflakes and then served the extras over rice with cream of chicken soup for a side. I did like the carrots in this recipe and so did my kids, I will definitely make them again.
