I just got back from a two week trip to visit family and to take my daughter to get her wisdom teeth removed. It was a busy trip and I am happy to be home again. While I was there, I ate some leftover baked chicken my mom had made the night before. It was really good, slightly sweet and nice and moist. I couldn’t determine what she had used for the flavor, so I asked her. She smiled a little sheepishly and said “Well, I was out of corn flakes so I used Frosted Flakes.” I decided to try it out on my family last night and it was a hit! This recipe is super easy and tastes great!
I like to use round cake pans as my trays. One for the frosted flakes and the other for the slightly beaten egg whites.
The process is easy. Simply dry off each piece of chicken with a paper towel, dredge through the egg whites and then coat with frosted flakes. I baked them in a greased 9×13 pan for 50 minutes at 375 degrees.
Give it a try and see if your family can figure out the “secret” ingredient!
