    We don't usually purchase corn flakes here as no one really cares for them as a cereal. I have made this recipe many times using italian style bread crumbs instead the the corn flakes. You can also add just a smidgen of ranch dressing mix to perk it up just a little more.

    I agree with swtnsassy about the corn flakes... why not just use ground corn used for polenta instead? much healthier...and if seasonings are needed use some dry herbs in the corn mix.. the closer we get the whole food the better, corn flakes are a stretched step away from whole corn... ground dried corn is much closer, healthier and tastier.

    We don't eat corn flakes either so I use panko bread crumbs. The chicken comes out really crunchy this way. I also bake it in the oven to cut down on fat.

    Oven bake a must. Good choice Riley. Frying is horrible for the health and such a mess, can't stand the thought of it. I don't bread things and can't remember when I last did? but if I were to oven is the way to go and I would roll in a single whole food maybe with dry herbs but not a processed product, would ruin the entire dish for me to serve.

     I think the corn flakes give it a crunchy coating more then breadcrumbs. it all works..crushed rice krispies would work too.
