This was a great, quick dinner for the family. The coatings kept the chicken so juicy and tender. 4 out of 5 in my house would like to have it again- the 5th is a vegetarian =)
If you love fried chicken, try this recipe. Why it's better for you: One bite into these chicken breasts with a crunch courtesy of cornflakes and you won't even miss the grease!
