Description

This spicy Nashville Hot Chicken dish is popular for a reason...It's so addicting! I satisfied my craving by making this healthier baked version for weeknight dinners.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 Tablespoons hot sauce (I like Franks)
  • 4-6 chicken breast, thin cutlets

Crust:

  • 2 cups Corn Flakes, crushed extra fine
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper (optional)

Instructions

  1. Mix together the hot sauce and buttermilk. Add the chicken and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  3. Mix together all of the "crust" ingredients in a large bowl.
  4. Grease a baking pan well.
  5. Take the marinated chicken. Coat with the "crust" ingredients. Place on the greased pan.
  6. Bake chicken for 20 minutes on the middle rack.

Notes

* I crush my cornflakes by pounding them in a sealed plastic bag using a rolling pin. It's great for getting out any aggression!
