Vegan Cornflake Chicken Recipe

Day 84.

It's Gluten-Free Friday (for Lent) and I knew exactly what I wanted to make for the Friday meal this week. When I tried the Gardein chicken in the Vegan Fried Chicken recipe I knew there was a chicken recipe I just had to try with the Gardein. A family favorite when I was growing up was Cornflake Chicken and Crunchtop Potatoes (potato slices with cheese and cornflakes baked on top). I LOVED the crunchtop potatoes and that almost always ended up being the majority (and if I could get away with it, all) of my meal. I never liked meat, but part of me was a little jealous of this one. So, maybe it will be awesome with the yummy faux chicken. You have to love "meat" that meat-eaters think is similar enough and meat-dislikers different enough that they both love. Yes, that is the crux in our family. Fingers crossed on this recipe!

Cornflake Chicken
1 package Gardein Scallopini
Cornflakes (EnviroKidz is a good gluten-free variety)

Dredge cutlets in butter and coat in crumbled cornflakes. Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes. So simple

The Results
Wow! This is fantastic. It's crunchy and buttery and I will definitely eat at least one of these with my crunchtop potatoes from now on.

What is your favorite recipe from your childhood; do you make it for your family?

  1. This is fabulous - I do not eat meat (though I eat fish on occasion) so it is nice to see some good vegan recipes out there!!
    This is PERFECT for my new linky party, Foodie Friday. Please stop on over and link up!
    Oh - and found you at Home Sweet farm!

  2. Well, I'm not into vegan but I have made a meat version of this. Corn flakes make the best topping! BTW, in my version, I sprinkle a little curry powder into the cornflakes. You could probably use any spice you like if it fits your vegan and gluten-free lifestyle!

  3. I should have try to make this one,Im curious of the taste since i never try to cook this kind of recipe.
