Baked Cornflakes Chicken

After all the many years behind the road, when you invest in an oven, don't you think we should start baking? Utterly. Otherwise, it defeats the purpose of investing in a new kitchen equipment. Don't you think so? I reckon. All these while, I have been the over the stove portable grilling pan person (Grilled Fish In Banana Leaf & Grilled Salmon). So, oven investment seemingly has brought a broad smile on my face. Nevertheless, I must also say that we Malaysians, unless you are baking enthusiast, we generally prefer on fire under our pots and pans cooking. Anyway, I am not regretting. Never know, it may spiral me to start seriously baking? Early to throw words though and mind you, I have already started and here is the latest from my oven. Baked Cornflakes Chicken (Grilled Chicken Wings). Any part will do (Sesame Chicken & Sweet Chilli Chicken), of course, I love the sinful wings (Chicken Feet Kerabu/Salad), but remember, as far as I know, baking is healthier compared to frying (Fried Shrimp Wanton). Dried herbs I already had went into this baked cornflakes chicken, of course you have the liberty to to other herbs, fresh or dried. Crispy, yummy and mouth crunching pop-ohlalala Baked Cornflakes Chicken, paired alongside sweet potatoes, optional. 

For chicken wings
5 chicken wings - cut into two pieces between the thick and thin bones
1 1/2 cup corn flakes - crushed
5 garlic - chopped
1 tsp  dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
4 tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste

For sweet potatoes
2 (about 300g) sweet potatoes - simmered and cubed
2 tbsp olive oil
Pepper and salt to taste
Marinate wings with oil, garlic, oregano, basil, chilli flakes and salt for at least 2 hours.
Thereafter, coat/roll each wing generously over corn flakes.
Arrange on a non stick baking tray/pan.
Bake at 180c for 40 mins or until wings are cooked, crispy brown coating atop.
(Note: when one side is brown enough, turn wings over so that both sides are evenly baked)

For The Sweet Potatoes
In a mixing bowl, combine and toss all the ingredients.
Serve with baked wings.
