  1. + Directions : Michael Stern and his wife, Jane, are the coauthors of the best-selling American cookbook Square Meals. Like many Americans - and for that matter like many of the worlds' great chefs and food experts - Michael came by his love of good simple food at his mother's table. Regarding his recipe he writes: Cornflake chicken is the playful side of American home cooking. Of course, it is no replacement for chicken pan-fried in lard; but it is easy, it is delicious in its own right, and it is fun. Such culinary fun, which involves making something new from unlikely off-the-shelf supermarket products, is as American as mock apple pie.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix together eggs and milk in a shallow dish. Mix cornflake crumbs, salt, and pepper in a separate dish.

  3. Dip chicken pieces first in the egg mixture, then dredge in crumbs to coat evenly.

  4. Arrange chicken pieces in a greased 13 X 9 X 2-inch baking dish. Drizzle with melted butter. Bake uncovered for 1 hour.
