For Chicken
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley

For Dipping
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil which will be covered with a wire baking rack. Spray rack lightly. Some of the coating may fall through the rack. Get that up before you bake.
  2. Lay out a medium sized bowl for the eggs, and three plates for the flour dredge, the corn flake dredge and a plate for the coated product.
  3. Mix together the flour with ¼ each of salt and pepper.
  4. Crush the corn flakes and place in plate.Season with herbs, garlic powder and ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  5. Loosely beat eggs.
  6. Dredge chicken in flour, then eggs, then into corn flake mixture.
  7. Make sure surface is fully coated and place on rack to bake.
  8. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Turn once at 6 minutes.
  9. Serve with dipping sauce.
  10. Dredge
Breakfast for Dinner does have a buttermilk ranch sauce, but I used a store bought dressing.
