When you get stressed out, do you crave comfort food? Usually anything fried is a good place to start, but all the calories and fat will just stress you out even more. This dish gives you the crunchy texture of fried chicken without any of the guilt. Check out the recipe below and let me know if it satisfies your comfort food urges.
Cornflake Crusted Chicken
|1 spray cooking spray|
|2/3 cup light salad dressing (I used Walden Farms calorie-free)|
|1/8 tsp table salt|
|1/8 tsp black pepper|
|2 tsp dill, freshly chopped|
|1 medium scallion, finely sliced|
|1 cup cornflake crumbs|
|1 pound uncooked boneless skinless chicken breasts, four 4 oz pieces|
Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a shallow pan with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine honey mustard dressing, salt, pepper, dill and scallions; remove 1/3 cup and set aside. Place cornflake crumbs in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken into dressing mixture and then cornflake crumbs; place in prepared pan. Bake until chicken is golden and no longer pink in center, about 15 minutes. Drizzle remaining dressing mixture (the 1/3 cup that was set aside) over chicken breasts and serve. Yields 1 piece of chicken and about 1-1/3 tablespoons of dressing per serving.
