    Oh, yeah. I used Italian bread crumbs instead of corn flakes. Also, people, try smashing crackers and use that for the breading. - 10/6/08

    this was great!! a good way to make the chicken crispy on the underside is to place the baking sheet on top of something; I place mine on top of a couple of souffle cups; the point is to allow heat to go underneath; the wire rack doesn't cut it. - 6/17/10

    I really like this dish. It was easy to make. Chicken was juicy and tender. So much flavor. Low calorie just add bake vegetables and you can have a dinner meal for under 200 calories. Make losing weight so much easier. - 9/26/08

    I have also used instant potatoes instead of corn flakes and roll the chicken in egg whites instead of the butter spray - 1/17/10

    I made this recipe a couple of nights ago. I pulsed the corn flakes on my food processer and added a tsp. of dried rosemary leaves.....the best! - 2/3/09
