  1. My Mom made corn flake chicken all the time when I was growing up.I still make it today with chickenpieces, not strips.I dredge the chicken in milk and add garlic powder,Pink Himalayan salt and freshly ground pepper to the chicken before I coat it in the crumbs.Bake at 375 for about 40-45 min.I have also used dry ranch and Italian dressing mix to the chicken first.Yummy comfort food to me!!!Bonus:GF and no other nasty things I don’t want to put into my body!!PS: alternately, you can sprinkle the dry dressing on top of the corn flakes and gently pat it in.Just add a few more flakes to any “bald”spots.
