Spicy Honey Cornflake Baked "Fried" Chicken Recipe

Fried chicken is my weakness, but I don’t always want to break out a fryer. This baked "fried" chicken is the perfect easy weeknight dinner recipe to satisfy that craving!

I love this baked "fried" chicken recipe because it is such a perfect easy weeknight dinner recipe and can be whipped up in just a bit over 30 minutes.

Start with your chicken fillets, an eggwash and your cornflake mixture.

Chicken Prep

Dredge in the egg mixture.

And then the cornflakes.

And then place them on a cookie sheet with a nonstick silicone liner on it (we love Silpat) and a baking rack on top of that. This really helps the chicken stay crispy on all sides and the silicone sheet makes cleanup a breeze.

Then it’s off to a screaming hot oven for 25 minutes. Drizzle them with a bit of honey in the last five minutes and you are ready for dinner.

In terms of side dishes for this dinner, we love fixing whipped potatoes and a nice veggie side dish with it. It makes a fantastic packable picnic lunch too!

Try this awesome whipped cauliflower recipe and this healthy crunchy broccoli salad for a powerhouse of flavors while keeping it healthier too.
