This Buttermilk Cornflake Chicken dish is made with chicken drumsticks, corn flakes, butter, and garlic powder.
We were a part of a food challenge to see who can make a dish incorporating a cereal and well, this Cornflake crusted chicken did not disappoint! It is one of Nan and Linda’s secret recipes - the trick is at the end, to dump the remaining corn flakes into butter and sprinkle all over the chicken for that extra crunch!
What are good substitutes?
We once made this same recipe with Rice Krispies instead, but I think corn flakes have the perfect texture we are craving. You can break the cereal to whatever size you prefer, but I usually like them medium sized. Although the smaller they are, the better the corn flakes will stick.

How to make Cornflake Crusted Drumsticks
Preheat the oven to 375 F. In a large plate or tray, add all of the corn flakes and crush them with your hands until you get small pieces that will stick to the chicken. Add the garlic powder into the corn flakes and keep crushing and mixing with your hands.
In a large bowl, melt the butter in a microwave. Pour butter in a large bowl along with the buttermilk. Prepare a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Dip a drumstick into the buttermilk and then into the corn flakes and finally into the baking pan. Continue with the rest of the drumsticks. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes.
