Served at my daughter-in-law’s birthday dinner - these were a big hit - I made a few changes - partly because of what I had on hand - did not have any cereal so used some ½ bread crumbs and ½ shredded cheese. Added some of the black pepper but could not use the red pepper due to allergies - I gave them about a minute or two under the broiler to give them a bit more brown - they were tender, moist and oh so tasty. Even a couple of picky eaters who tried them really liked them.

My family simply didn't like... perhaps it was the Kellogg's brand of cornflakes. I tried to disguise the taste by turning it into chicken sandwiches. Failed =(

I really liked the healthy alternative to this baked chicken recipe by using the chicken stock instead of eggs. I used turkey tenders (as that was what I had in the freezer) and made turkey fingers instead of the cutlets. The only suggestion I have is to flip the meat about half way through so it doesn't get soggy on the bottom.

I changed the chicken stock to sour cream thinned with mikk from another recipe and it worked well. Also baked the breasts on parchment paper to use no oil and drizzeled melted butter over them before baking them. Turned out great.

This is a great no-fry crunchy chicken dinner! I made it for my normally picky husband and he loved it. I actually used garlic & butter croutons for the coating. I also baked 10 min each side, then broiled for an additional 2 minutes for extra crunchiness.

The chicken stayed very moist and I liked the breading. However, next time I make this, I will make the following changes: 1. don't crush the corn flakes as finely - I think it will have more interesting texture, mine wasn't crispy, 2. add herbs for more flavor. Otherwise, good dish.

This is good. I doubled the mixture, because I had chicken strips, instead. It worked out well.

For how easy, cheap and quick to prepare this recipe is, it is definitely worthy of a five star rating. I added some italian seasoning as another had mentioned, and it was so good! Will definitely be adding this to the dinner rotation.
