Kentucky Derby Krispy Chicken

Planning a Kentucky Derby party for this coming Saturday? Looking for some healthy recipes for your Southern style menu?

Well, here’s a crispy chicken recipe that’s so full of crunch and flavor-you won’t miss the fact that this dish is baked with cornflakes rather than deep-fried in oil. My mom used to make this Southern Fried Chicken for us all the time when I was a kid! It’s one of my favorites!


4 – 4 oz. skinless, boneless chicken breasts

1/4 cup Fat-Free Ranch dressing

1/2 cup crushed cornflakes

Spices of choice (such as parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, etc.)

Salt (optional)

Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Mix spices, salt, and cornflakes in a bowl and set aside

Dip chicken in Fat-Free Ranch dressing

Roll chicken in cornflake mixture

Spray rack with cooking spray

Place chicken on rack on a cookie sheet

Cook until chicken is done, about 45 minutes to 1 hour
