Test kitchen stand-out: 30 Minute No-Fry Chicken - "Fried chicken is something I miss so much, and knowing now that there's an alternative that tastes basically the same but is much healthier makes me really excited. I've used corn flakes in frying chicken for years but I had no idea it would still come out crispy if it was baked. I can't wait to try this recipe!"
