Crunchy Garlic Chicken


Are you finding a trend? Original recipe, tweaked, kid-friendly…

2 tbs butter/marg. melted
2 tbs milk
1 tbs chopped chives or parsley (I use parsley flakes)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic pwd
2 cups cornflakes cereal= 1 cup crushed (I pre-crush and store in pantries)
3 tbs chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tsp paprika
6 boneless, skinless chx breast halves (1 3/4lbs) (I pre-cube and refrigerate after baking an entire bag)
2 tbs butter/margarine, melted

(original receipt found on page 291 of the Betty Crocker’s Cookbook- The BIG RED Cookbook)

My tweaked version:

If serving/not freezing: Heat oven to 425′. Grease an 8x8ish glass casserole dish
Melt butter, stir in seasonings, add cereal, then add cubed/chopped chx, mix everything! If you mixed in a separate bowl (which I recommend so the stuff slopped up the sides doesn’t burn and look gross when you’re serving it), scoop everything into your casserole dish and freeze for later or bake for 20-30 min. (from freezer double baking time).

Love this meal! The tweaked version was an accident: I didn’t read the recipe close enough when making it for the second time and added everything together before I remembered they were supposed to be in separate dished and i should be doing a coating method. Couldn’t go back so I baked it like it was and everyone ate it up and for my preschooler and toddler it ended up being easier than trying to cut up their meat for them after served.

Comment and let me know if you try this recipe or if you have a “tweaked” favorite recipe of your own!

  1. Btw, my “tweaked” version also includes about 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar, 1/2 cup of grated parmesan, and some Creole seasoning…yum yum! Now it’s making me hungry…I might have to make it…then post about it too! haha.

  2. My recipe tweaking often comes from not having all the necessary ingredients. If I’m missing one ingredient, I often substitute or leave out something. It can be both good and bad. One in particular I plan to be blogging about soon!
