Directions 9 steps | 65 Minutes

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Measure and prep all ingredients.

Step 2

In the bowl of a food processor or in a large bowl, pulse or crush the cornflakes, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, parsley, smoked paprika, garlic and onion powder together until coarse crumbs form.

Step 3

With the food processor running, drizzle in the avocado or canola oil. Alternatively, transfer the cornflake crumbs into a bowl and drizzle in the oil while stirring to ensure that the crumbs are evenly coated. Transfer the cornflake crumbs into a large shallow bowl.

Step 4

In a second shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, hot sauce and yellow mustard. In a third shallow bowl, add the all-purpose flour.

Step 5

Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.

Step 6

Coat one piece of chicken with the flour and shake off the excess. Transfer the flour-coated chicken to the egg mixture and let the excess drip off.

Step 7

Finally, dredge the chicken with the seasoned cornflake crumbs and place on the prepared sheet pan. Repeat with the remaining chicken.

Step 8

Bake the chicken for 40-50 minutes or until golden brown and the internal temperature of the chicken reads at least 165°F. Let the chicken rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.

Step 9

Serve with a side of green beans, salad or rice. Enjoy!
