Cooking Corner: Crunchy garlic chicken

There’s no need to run around like a chicken with your head cut off to make the Cooking Corner dish this week! With midterms all but over and finals slowly creeping up on the horizon, it is important for the aspiring engineer to keep on top of their diet. Between shots of Red Bull or whatever else any college student is sure to be drinking, it is important to make sure to get some protein. Chicken is an excellent source of protein, and while some of the ingredients will not be found in the typical college pantry, a quick trip to the store is certain to be worth the time. This recipe will not leave you lacking in heartiness or flavor.

4 tablespoons butter/margarine, melted
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups corn flakes cereal, crushed
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon paprika
3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spray rectangular pan with cooking spray.
2. Mix 2 tablespoons of butter, the milk, salt, and 1 tablespoon of parsley and garlic powder. Set aside. Mix crushed cereal, parsley, and paprika. Dip chicken into milk mixture, and then coat lightly and evenly with the cereal mixture. Place in pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons melted butter.
3. Bake uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink when cutting into thickest pieces.
