Tips for Making the Best Crispy Oven Fried Chicken with Cornflakes

– If the cornflake mixture won't stick, dredge the chicken in flour before dipping it in the egg mixture. This will help the cornflakes stick better.

– To avoid soggy chicken tenders, bake the chicken on a wire rack set over a baking tray. The air will circulate around the chicken as it cooks, helping to crisp it and preventing sogginess.

– You can add other seasonings to the cornflake mixture. Garlic powder, dried basil, dried oregano, and cayenne pepper all taste amazing.

Store leftover oven-fried chicken with cornflakes in an airtight container. Enjoy it within 4 days.

To reheat the chicken, wrap it in foil and bake it for 15 minutes at 250°F. The internal temperature should read 165°F.
