Cayenne wouldn't work for most kids. I would also leave out the thyme. Cornflakes should adhere better if you put the chicken in the fridge for an hour before baking.

This recipe isn't hot at all from the cayenne pepper. Very distinct flavor. Very crunchy. Hubby and I really enjoyed this. I will definitely make it again!

Did not like this at all and would not rate this at all kid friendly. The cayenne and thyme gave the chicken a weird flavor pairing. Kids and I dumped the leftovers.

This was not good. It literally tasted like corn flakes on chicken - no taste at all. I could not get anyone to eat them (young or old), not even myself!

Really liked this. We typically have to change the seasoning a bit to fit our taste buds so I didn't find it as tasteless as others noted. We used butter flavored cooking spray instead of butter and I had our son crunch up the cornflakes really well so it was more between cornflakes and breadcrumbs than just cornflakes.

This is a staple at our house and we don't even have kids younger than sixteen. I don't flatten the chicken breasts- they stay moister that way. I don't use eggs, I soak the breasts in buttermilk that I add some hot sauce and dried thyme to.

Really good base recipe. We left out the thyme and cayenne (picky kids) and seasoned it with the basics, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. I doubled the recipe and easily fed 7 people - ALL of them proclaimed it was the BEST CHICKEN EVER! Would have given it 5 stars, if I hadn't changed anything.
