Crispy Cornflake Chicken with Winter Slaw

  • Author: Jess Bunn

  • Yield: Serves 2


A healthier take on crispy chicken, this air-fried cornflake-crusted chicken with winter slaw is a true quick and easy weeknight winner.



For the Chicken

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 3 cups /75g cornflakes
  • 1/4 cup/ 25g parmesan
  • Pinch of fine Sea Salt
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

For the Winter Slaw

  • 1/2 Small Celeriac (500g roughly)
  • 1 green apple
  • 1/3 cup/80g Mayonaise
  • 1 Tbsp Wholegrain Mustard
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 Tbsp of Capers, chopped
  • Handful of Parsley, finely chopped


  1. Prepare your chicken fillets. Place them between two sheets of baking paper, and using a rolling pin or heavy object, pound the fillets until about 1cm thick throughout. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the cornflakes, parmesan, salt and garlic powder into your mini food processor or crush it up in a zip lock bag to create the crumb coating. Once cornflakes are roughly 2mm in size,, add the oil and pulse a few times more until well combined, this allows for an even distribution. Stir the sesame seeds through the cornflake crumb.
  3. Beat egg in a separate bowl and season with salt and pepper. Put the cornflake crumb mixture in another bowl. Dip the chicken in the egg and then the cornflake breading, and repeat to coat the chicken in a double coating. Air fry at 190C for 6 minutes until golden and crisp.
  4. For the winter slaw, start by peeling the celeriac, then slice thinly and julienning into fine strips. Do the same with the apple (there’s no need to peel it).
  5. Combine the mayo, mustard, chopped capers and lemon juice in a separate bowl.
  6. Add the chopped parsley, julienned celeriac and apple into the mayo mixture and toss well.
