Cornflakes Fried Chicken [When I Craved For Fried Chicken]

Corn Flakes Fried Chicken

A quick and easy fried chicken recipe that I like - fried chicken breast strips with crispy cornflakes coating. Together with vegetable sticks, it was a yummy home-made fast food kiddy meal for my boy.

Both John and I loved cucumber and carrot sticks with mayonnaise (Japanese brand) very much. If you have not tried, vegetable sticks (both poached and raw) are really good with mayonnaise, sometimes I will add some Korean chilli paste (gochujang) for extra kick.

Corn Flakes Fried Chicken

Ingredients (makes 2 servings):
300g chicken breast meat, cut into strips
2-3 tbsp all-purpose flour

1 nos. egg, lightly beanten
1 tbsp milk
60g cornflakes (more/less), crushed
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper

Oil for deep-frying


  1. Pat dry chicken strips with paper towel then marinate with salt and pepper to taste for about 10 minutes. Add in other spices if desired.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare egg mixture by mixing together egg and milk in a bowl.
  3. And, combine crushed cornflakes with salt and pepper in a separated shallow bowl.
  4. Put all-purpose flour into a clean plastic bag, add in chicken strips and shake well to coat all chicken strips with flour evenly.
  5. Take a piece of chicken coated with flour, shake to remove excess flour. Dip into egg mixture, then drop in cornflakes bowl to coat. Repeat for all chicken strips.

I love cornflake chicken as well! Sometimes I like to bake it, instead of frying it (takes longer though).

Great for snacking :) I have never thought of using cornflakes ...most of the time I used bread crumbs for coating. Thanks for this great recipe.
