"It was a little soggy for me. Also not very flavorful."

"I made 6 chicken breasts - some with crushed cheddar crackers and some with bruschetta-flavour crackers since I didn't have any corn flakes. I also added a bit of dried basil. This worked great, and tasted awesome. It's so simple to make too! It needed 35-40 minutes to bake though, because of the thickness of the chicken breasts."

"I didn't have seasoned salt so I just left it out. It turned out amazing!! I've never had chicken turn out so moist. I didn't expect it to be so flavorful with just yogurt and cornflakes. It's really good with rice."

"I would make this again, because it was good, but next time, instead of yogurt I think I'll use ranch. And maybe some different spices, because it verges on being bland."
