Cornmeal Crusted Baked Chicken

Cornmeal Crusted Baked Chicken | Carrie's Experimental Kitchen #chicken

I made this recipe for Cornmeal Crusted Baked Chicken about a month or two ago, but forgot to share it with you. It’s really quite easy with only a few ingredients: chicken, eggs, cornmeal and rosemary. Simple right? You can use this breading for chicken (bone-in or boneless), pork or even fish. You just have to adjust your cooking times accordingly. Cornmeal is made from dried corn kernels so it is naturally gluten free for those of you following a gluten free diet. This Cornmeal Crusted Baked Chicken is quick and delicious. Try using chicken tenderloins to make it “kid friendly”; they’ll love it. ~Enjoy!
