You don't have to feel guilty about these tender chicken fingers. They've got the satisfying flavour of fried, but are baked in the oven.


  • 5 cups cornflake cereal

  • 1 tsp dried Italian seasoning

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard

  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts

  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with foil.

  • Crush cornflakes with your hands in a medium bowl until finely crumbled. Stir in Italian seasoning. Pour flour into a shallow dish. Whisk egg with honey and Dijon in another shallow dish.

  • Cut each chicken breast lengthwise into 1/2-in. strips and pat dry with paper towel. Sprinkle with salt. Dredge each piece in flour and then egg mixture, then press into cornflakes to cover. Lay chicken on prepared sheet.

  • Bake in centre of oven until golden-brown, 18 to 20 min. Serve with more honey for dipping, if desired.
