Cornflake Chicken

Like chicken nuggets- but more refined and healthy!

¼ teaspoon garlic powder and a few dashes of salt and pepper
2 cups crushed cornflakes
16 ounces raw chicken breasts (about 4 average or 2 very large)
1/4 cup egg whites
2 tablespoons buttermilk or kefir


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix the cornflakes, pepper and salt in a small bowl then spread it on a large plate. Mix the egg whites and buttermilk/kefir in a small plate or shallow bowl. Dip each chicken breast in the egg mixture to wet each side and then coat each side with cornflakes. Place the coated chicken breasts on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray and bake for 12-15 minutes. Flip them over and bake for another 12-15 minutes, or until no longer pink in the center.
