Baked Lemon Chicken

Are you gluten free and think you can’t have a crunchy oven cooked chicken breast because you can’t use bread crumbs?  Allergic to eggs and think that same chicken breast is off limits because eggs are what are usually used to make crumbs stick to chicken?

Well, think again.  You can have your crunchy oven cooked chicken breast without gluten and without egg!

A simple substitution of corn flakes (check the box to make sure it is gluten free) is the perfect choice to make this dish gluten free.  Pat your chicken breasts dry with a paper towel and you do not need egg to make the corn flakes stick.

Adapted from a hand written recipe card, this easy baked lemon chicken dish can become a family favorite.

    I have no come across gluten-free cornflakes. Where are they available – chain store, health food store, what? This is a lovely chicken recipe and for now, I can use crushed chips or corn meal to coat the chicken.

      If you live in USA I have found them in my travels in walmart of all places, health food stores sell them.
      If your in Canada Superstore sells them in their organic/health food section and also pretty much all health food stores sell them.
