Breaded Chicken Fingers

I made these wonderful little tenders with Corn Flakes. I like Corn Flakes better than breadcrumbs because you get more of a crunch and it tastes pretty close to being fried. These would be so perfect for a party, like the Super Bowl.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1 1/2 Cup Corn Flakes, crushed
  • 2 Teaspoons grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 Teaspoon paprika
  • Dash of cayenne
  • 1 Pound boneless chicken breasts

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a shallow bowl combine the egg white and water. In another shallow bowl, combine the Corn Flakes, cheese, and seasonings, and stir until combined. Cut the chicken breasts horizontally and then cut into strips.

Dredge the chicken in egg whites, then dip into the Corn Flake mixture. Place on the baking sheet. Bake until the chicken is cooked through, about 18 minutes.

Bread Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Bread Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
