Crunchy Nut Chicken

This is such a simple yet wonderfully tasting way to crumb chicken. Not only is it a crunchy topping but it is loved by everyone in our house. The kids love it as it tastes like the cereal, Crunchy Nut Cornflake made by Kellogs, which they have in the morning - I like it because it tastes nice and is once again a recipe that falls under a few of my favourite categories - quick, easy, and weeknight wonder

This meal can be served with a salad or like we have done with roasted cherry tomatoes and Cauliflower Au Gratin (Cauliflower Cheese). But in my opinion although this is such an easy recipe I am sure that if served at a dinner party it would definitelymake an impression on your dinner guests.
