Lighten up this hearty all-American favorite by switching to oven frying. We kicked up the flavor by using buttermilk and a dash of cayenne pepper.
1/3 cup(s) all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp table salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
3 oz buttermilk
1/2 cup(s) cornflake crumbs
1 pound(s) Chicken, breast, raw, without skin & bone, four 4-oz pieces
Preheat oven to 365ºF. Lightly coat an 8 X 8 X 2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
Combine flour, salt and cayenne pepper together in a medium-size bowl. Place buttermilk and corn flakes crumbs in 2 separate shallow bowls.
Roll chicken breast halves in flour mixture and evenly coat each side. Next dip chicken into buttermilk and then corn flakes crumbs.
Place coated chicken breasts in prepared baking dish. Bake until chicken is tender and no longer pink, about 25 to 30 minutes (there is no need to flip the chicken during baking).
Yields 1 breast per serving.
