Serves 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunk
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (GF)
  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 2 cups crushed Corn Flakes

For the sauce

  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch (GF)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a cooling rack with nonstick spray and place on a baking sheet; set aside.
  2. Working in batches, dredge chicken in flour, dip into eggs, then dredge in crushed Corn Flakes, pressing to coat.
  3. Place onto prepared baking sheet and coat with nonstick spray. Place into oven and bake until golden brown and crisp, about 13-15 minutes.
  4. In a large saucepan over medium high heat, combine chicken broth, hoisin, rice vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar and cornstarch until thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in chicken and gently toss to combine.
  5. Serve immediately.
