Recipe Notes

  • If you'd like a little heat, feel free to add a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes.

  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the flour into a mixing bowl. Whisk the eggs in another bowl. Put the Corn Flakes into a third bowl. 
  2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, to taste, if desired. Dip the chicken into the flour, then into the eggs and, lastly, into the Corn Flakes. Place tenders onto a greased baking sheet.
  3. Bake tenders in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 7 to 8 minutes. Flip the chicken over and bake another 7 to 8 minutes, or until cooked through and crispy.
