This recipe comes to you straight out of my childhood home. It was one of my favorite things that my mom used to make for us and one of the very first things I cooked on my own. My mom taught me to cut up a whole chicken when I was about 11. My parents had a houseful so I’m sure any help we could give was much appreciated. Little did I know that years later I’d be using the very same recipe and skills to cook for my own family. If you haven’t tried this before, I hope you enjoy it and if you’ve had it and it brings back some memories…then you’re welcome:)
1 whole chicken (cut up)
5 cups cornflakes
1/2 cup milk
1. Preheat oven to 350. Cut up your chicken. I didn’t attempt to show you how to do this because I tried to teach someone once and it didn’t really turn out so great… If you don’t know how, you could always buy one already cut up.
2. Crush the cornflakes. This is where my kiddos come in handy. You could always take out some aggression this way too:)
3. Crack your eggs (I use a pie plate) scramble them and add the milk. Whip the two ingredients together.
4. Put the crushed cornflakes into another pie plate.
5. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture and roll in the cornflakes. Place chicken into a 9 x 13 pan.
6. Cook for 1 hour – 1 hour 15 minutes.
