We eat a lot of chicken around here, so I love finding new recipes we can try!  I found this recipe at Jamie Cooks It Up! and loved it.  The sauce is so creamy and flavorful.  We will definitely be having this again!

  • 3 large chicken breasts
  • 5 cup corn flakes
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 6 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 12 oz package bowtie noodles (farfalle)
  • Sauce:
  • 1 10 oz container Philadelphia Cooking Cream (Italian Cheese and Herb Flavor)
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • fresh parsley, chopped (optional)


  1. In a small food processor crush the corn flakes into crumbs.
  2. Add the 1/2 t salt to the 3/4 C flour. Stir to combine.
  3. Place the flour, milk and crushed cornflakes each into their own separate pan. Loaf pans work well for this. If you don't have three loaf pans, do not dismay. You could use pie tins, or round cake pans...what ever works for you.
  4. Place your chicken breasts in a gallon sized Ziploc bag and seal the top.
  5. Pound the chicken flat with a meat mallet. You will really be thankful for the Ziploc bag in this step. Who wants a bunch of chicken guts flying around their kitchen? Not me...that's who.
  6. Take a pair of sharp kitchen scissors and cut each breast in half.
  7. Dredge the chicken in the flour. Be sure it gets covered on both sides.
  8. Lay the floured chicken onto a small cookie sheet and slide the sheet into the freezer. Let it hang out there for about 5 minutes.
  9. Start cooking your pasta.
  10. Remove the chicken from the freezer and dredge each piece in the milkand then immediately into the corn flake crumbs. Again, be sure both sides are covered well.
  11. Add the olive oil to a hot skillet.
  12. Carefully lay each chicken piece into the hot oil. Sprinkle with a little bit of salt and pepper. Cook over medium high heat for about 5 minutes....
  13. or until the underside of each piece is nice and golden brown. Turn the pieces over. If the bottom of the pan is dry add just a bit more olive oil to the side of the pan. Swirl the pan around a bit to let the oil flow to all sides. Cover the pan and reduce the heat to medium. Let the chicken cook for about 7 more minutes, being careful not to burn the bottoms. Burned bottoms are not advised. In any shape or form. Thank you.
  14. When your chicken has been cooked through remove it from the pan and place it on a plate. Cover with tin foil.
  15. Into the same pan pour your broth. Philly Cooking Creme, Cream of Chicken, and milk. Whisk the sauce around and let it get all warm and bubbly. Should only take about 3 minutes.
  16. Slice your chicken into strips and serve over your cooked pasta and sauce. Garnish with chopped parsley if you choose.

  1. Looks/sounds delicious...but you should never fry with olive oil. It is not stable under high heat and actually becomes a bad fat when heated above 350 degrees. Still not sure why so many cooking shows say to use olive oil in cooking. Olive oil is a finishing oil!!
