Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a large cast-iron skillet with nonstick spray over medium-high heat.

Sprinkle the chicken with the Paula Deen House Seasoning. Combine the buttermilk, hot sauce, egg whites and lemon zest and juice in a large bowl and toss the chicken to coat.

Pour the cornflake crumbs into another large bowl. Dip the chicken into the crumbs, pressing to adhere, and then place in the skillet and into the oven. Bake until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through or an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh registers 165 degrees F, 40 to 45 minutes.
Mix together the salt, garlic powder and pepper and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months. Yield: 1 1/2 cups.

    This is the best chicken I have had hands down. My picky children love it and it is very easy to make. It does brown better in an iron skillet, but it also works on a baking pan. I am disappointed that there is no nutritional information on this recipe however.

    Very tasty. I don't have an iron skillet so I baked in a metal baking pan. It came out crispy but as I read in other reviews I should have flipped it so both sides would be crispy. I used panko instead of cornflakes and it's not easy to stick but I pressed it in and it was fine. Next time I will make my own buttermilk so I don't have to buy a quart, it seems really easy to make.

    We LOVED this recipe! I will probably never fry chicken again.I can't wait until summer so we can try the green tomatoes and zucchini.I never thought eating healthier could taste so good!
