"I found the basic recipe for this in the TV Guide over 35 years ago. Even though I've changed it slightly to reduce the fat and increase the flavor, it remains a family favorite to this day. It is very easy and SO delicious... hot OR cold."

Came out excellent made as written. I want to make again today but I'm out of cornflakes, so I think I'll try panko just for fun. I liked the lemon flavor a lot and wonder how it would taste with Italian spices. Very easy adaptable recipe. I particularly liked the recipe chilled the next day as slices on a salad with ranch dressing. Very tasty.
I think you could use limeade instead of lemonade for an Island flavor. Breasts are really boring, so I would use 8 bone-in, skin-on thighs. Also I would substitute panko for the cornflakes and add 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes for zip. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro or parsley according to taste.
Delicious. Scaled down to 2 chix breasts and used seasoned bread crumbs instead of cornflakes and thyme. Marinated about an hour, cooked in about 1/2 hour. Served with roasted potatoes that I cooked on the same pan as the chix and steamed broccoli. Very moist, very easy, definately a keeper.
I really liked this recipe. The lemonade was not overpowering, just added a little flavor. I also used panko crumbs and my whole family really enjoyed this chicken.
I thought it was really good! Had a sweet lemony flavor. I think it's best to pound the chicken thin so that it cooks more evenly. If any parts get burned it can leave a really funny taste
This is my husband's favourite dinner-so easy and delicious! I took some of the suggestions and marinade the breasts in limeade. I always use cornflakes and toss in a few extra spices instead of the thyme-chili and garlic powder. Will keep making this again and again, thanks!
This was ok. The lemon taste was too strong so perhaps next time i'll water it down a bit. It was incredibly easy to make.
