Crispy Oven-Baked Chicken

This is a delicious way to fix chicken that has all the flavor without all the calories. The cornflake coating is dressed up with a pleasant mixture of herbs and seasonings.

    This was ok, debating between 3 and 4 stars. Other than turning out a bit dry, it wasn't bad. There are just other oven breaded chicken recipes I prefer to make over this.

    This was perfect! I was looking for a way to make something like fried chicken, but in the oven, and this was delicious. Very moist and crispy.
