A Simple Dinner:  CHICKEN WRAPPED IN CORNFLAKE CRUMBS & TOPPED WITH LEMON SLICES

Note:  This entree is a variation on oven fried chicken.  The corn flake crumbs absorb some of the lemon juice, enhancing the taste of lemon but retaining corn flake crunchiness. 

For 4:

–6 chicken tenderloins or breast strips

–lemon (fresh)

–cornflakes (or corn chex, 1 cup, crushed)

–salt and pepper

–olive oil

1 – Place the chicken in a plastic bag.  Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil.  In a second plastic bag, place a generous amount of cornflakes or corn chex.  Using an ice cream scoop, crush the corn against the kitchen counter.  Then pour in the plastic bag with the chicken.  Shake well.  Place in a covered baking dish with a very little water (just to steam).

2 – With a very sharp knife, slice a lemon.  Place the slices atop the chicken.

3 – Microwave the chicken on high for 8 minutes.  Test a center piece of chicken to be sure that it is done.  If not, return to the microwave for 1 minute more.

4 – Serve the chicken hot, with a lemon slice atop each piece.

–recipe original.
