  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons Louisiana style hot sauce
  • 4 chicken breast
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven preheats, using a food processor blend until cornflakes are crushed.
  • Place the crushed cornflakes in a shallow dish, sprinkle with the paprika and garlic powder. Mix well and set to the side.
  • In another shallow dish mix together the egg, water and hot sauce. Whisk until incorporated and set next to the Cornflake mixture
  • Grab a rimmed baking sheet fitted with a wire rack. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Then season with salt and pepper on both sides (to taste). Dip the chicken breast in the egg mixture followed by the cornflake mixture. Make sure you coat both sides well. and then place on the wire rack. Repeat until all your chicken is coated and battered.

The secret to a crisp outer crust is using a baking sheet with a wire rackon top. That ensures that the chicken on the bottom won’t become soggy and that it will crisp all around!
