CORNFLAKE-CRUSTED CHICKEN TENDERSThe beloved breakfast cereal gives this kids’ menu staple a bit of a makeover and takes it to new, crunchy, flavorful heights.

  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Total Time: 45 Minutes


For Chicken
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 0.175 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 cups cornflakes, finely crushed (about 1 cup crushed)
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1½ pounds boneless skinless chicken tenders (about 20 tenders)
  • For Dipping
  • ½ cup store-bought ranch dressing or Buttermilk Ranch Sauce
How to Make It
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set a heatproof wire baking rack on top; spray rack lightly with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl or shallow dish, season flour with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper; whisk eggs in another shallow dish. In a third shallow dish, mix cornflakes with parsley, garlic, dill, the remaining ½ teaspoon salt, and the remaining ¼ teaspoon of pepper.
  3. Dredge chicken in flour to coat, shaking off excess. Dip into egg and then into cornflake mixture, making sure entire surface is coated. Arrange on prepared baking rack.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through, flipping once during cooking. Serve with Buttermilk Ranch Sauce for dipping.
