Ingredients

    2 cloves garlic, smashed

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine the garlic, spices, and buttermilk. Add the chicken and turn in the marinade. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour. Place cornflake crumbs on a plate. Drain the chicken. Turn chicken in cornflake crumbs until coated, gently pressing crumbs into chicken if necessary. Place on prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or unti firm. Serves 4. You can also use nonfat buttermilk, but I didn't have any.
