"I came up with this recipe for our son, who likes the fried chicken nuggets we get at a fas-food restaurant," writes Linda Keller of Jonesboro, Arkansas. "These tender chunks of chicken with a tasty cornflake, coating are fun to make---and eat."


  • 1 cup crushed cornflakes
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup prepared ranch salad dressing
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Additional ranch dressing


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a shallow bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Place dressing in another bowl. Toss chicken cubes in dressing, then roll in cornflake mixture.
  2. Place in a greased 11x7-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, until no longer pink, 12-15 minutes. Serve with additional dressing for dipping.
