Healthier Comfort Food: Baked Fried Chicken #KelloggsChamps

One of our favorite things to eat is breakfast for dinner – or brinner – as many like to call it. We LOVE breakfast foods – everything from homemade waffles to sweet pastries to cereal with cold milk. Another cool thing to do is to incorporate traditional breakfast items like cereal into your dinner. One of our favorites is Baked Fried Chicken, which uses to Kellogg’s Corn Flakes to give you that delicious crunch you expect from fried chicken with the added benefit of WAY LESS fat and calories.
