WW Cornflake Chicken

John and I love Cornflake Chicken.  But since you dip each piece of chicken into melted butter, it really isn’t very WW friendly.  I was so excited when I found a very similar recipe at That’s My Home.  She has a recipe for Southern-Style Oven Fried Chicken, that’s just a healthy version of Cornflake Chicken.

WW Cornflake Chicken

1/2 t. all-purpose flour
1/4 t. table salt
1/8 t. cayenne pepper
3 oz. buttermilk
3/4 C. corn flakes crumbs
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, four 4 oz pieces

Preheat oven to 365 F. Lightly coat an 8 X 8 X 2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

Combine flour, salt and cayenne pepper together in a medium-size bowl. Place buttermilk and corn flakes crumbs in 2 separate shallow bowls.

Roll chicken breast halves in flour mixture and evenly coat each side. Next dip chicken into buttermilk and then corn flakes crumbs.

Place coated chicken breasts in prepared baking dish. Bake until chicken is tender and no longer pink, about 20 minutes (there is no need to flip the chicken during baking).

Weight Watchers: 1 breast per serving – 4 POINTS per serving

The Cayenne Pepper has quite a bit of bite to it, I think we’ll leave it out completely next time.
