for the corn flake-crusted chicken

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into long strips
  • 1 cup flour seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 cups corn flakes crushed
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pepper to taste
  • oil for frying

for the honey mustard dipping sauce

  • 1 cup good quality mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1-2 teaspoons wholegrain mustard
  • 2-3 teaspoons honey to taste
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • To make the chicken strips, place the seasoned flour, egg and corn flake crumbs in separate bowls. Add the paprika, oregano, salt and pepper to the corn flake crumbs and mix well.
  • Coat the chicken strips first in the flour, then in egg and then in the corn flake crumbs. For an extra thick coating, you could repeat the egg and corn flake steps but you might need more of both egg and corn flakes.
  • When all the chicken is coated, heat enough oil to fry them in a deep frying pan/skillet.
  • Fry the chicken until golden brown on both sides and cooked through.
  • Remove from the oil and allow to drain on a piece of kitchen paper.
  • To make the honey mustard dipping sauce, combine all the ingredients and mix well.
  • Serve the hot chicken strips with the honey-mustard dipping sauce.
