Honey Crusted Chicken Recipe

This recipe introduces another possible variety of crusted chicken; you get to experience the crispy chicken with a hint of honey in every bite as it uses honey as the dip, cornflakes as the crust and a few spices to intensity the flavors; whenever you choose to make this make sure to use best quality of honey.

Recipe Info:

  • Servings: 3-4
  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 ½ cups cornflakes
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (freshly squeezed is preferred)
  • Cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a foil lined baking sheet with non stick cooking spray.

Rinse chicken thoroughly with cold water; pat dry the pieces with paper towels or clean cloth; using a sharp knife cut chicken breast into half horizontally. Sprinkle a generous amount of salt and pepper all over the chicken.


In a shallow bowl mix ¼ cup of honey with 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice; whisk for 30 seconds until smooth.


Put cornflakes in a zip lock bag; close it and crush cornflakes into crumbs; add ½ teaspoon garlic powder and ½ teaspoon dried oregano to the cornflake crumbs; shake the bag to combine all the ingredients; transfer the mixture to a plate.


Working with one at a time, dip chicken breasts in the honey mixture; let excess drip off the chicken;

Now dredge both sides of the piece in cornflakes mixture. Lightly press the mixture into it using back side of a wooden spatula and make sure to coat on all sides; repeat the process for remaining breasts.


Arrange all the coated chicken breasts on the prepared baking sheet; bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes until chicken cooks through. Test the doneness of the chicken before removing it from the oven; cut the thickest part of the breast with fork tip or read the internal temperature with a thermometer; ideal temperature should be 160 degrees F.

Take the tray out of the oven when done; transfer to a serving platter; garnish with chopped fresh parsley leaves if you like; serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce and green salad.


Notes & Tips:

  • To decrease the time use chicken cutlets instead of flattening a breast.
  • Add plenty of your favorite seasonings to the cornflake mixture.
  • Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of melted butter over coated chicken pieces before baking to keep it moist.
  • Use 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese as a topping just before serving.
  • Baking time varies according to the thickness of the chicken.
  • If you do not have cornflakes on hand use crushed cereal.
  • For a variation use turkey instead of chicken.
