Gluten Free Cornflake Chicken

A couple of days ago, we were heading out for a walk and I heard my husband say ‘Hi’ and then just kinda disappear behind the car. I couldn’t see him so I waited for him to return to the car. Anyway he opened the door and asked me if I would go sit with one of our elderly neighbours because she was waiting for an ambulance and was getting palpitations and chest pains. He had disappeared into her house at her request for help. I was already in the car by this point (we drive out to our walks 😆 ,) so i hadn’t seen or heard her. I think I already explained that but just in case..why do I do this over explaining thing?!

Of course, I was more then happy to sit with her and we ended up having a bit of a natter about all kinds of things. During that conversation she asked me about the kind of food we like to eat so I explained the variety of food we eat and said that my favourite meat is chicken and I rarely eat red meat. She also prefers chicken over red meat. By now, I am sure that you will have figured that out! Turns out that she is a chicken lover too. I also love vegetarian food! In fact it is what I prefer to eat most of the time.

I guess these are a really good alternative to deep fried chicken. The chicken remains very moist inside and really crispy and crunchy on the outside. You can add various spices to the cornflakes mixture and change up the recipe as much as you want. This recipe is so quick and easy to prepare and so delicious!
