Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Crush the cornflakes between two sheets of wax paper. Mix the crushed cornflakes with the thyme and pepper. Rinse the chicken thoroughly and pat dry with paper towels. Place the chicken, breast side up, in a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Brush the chicken with the melted margarine. Sprinkle the cornflakes on top of the chicken breasts. Cover the baking pan with a lid or a large sheet of foil tucked under the sides of the pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Carefully remove foil, then bake, uncovered, for another 30 minutes.

  • I think any cardiologist would highly approve of this recipe. Both very low in fat and sodium.

  • The recipe only calls for 1 tbs of margarine and it's brushed on so the amount is probably smaller. There are many margarine's out there so, read the ingredients to see if it fits in with your guidelines. And in closing...the chicken was good.

  • This is supposedly, a heart-healthy recipe, & it sounds like it, except for the mafgarine, but where are the nutritional facts so I can make an informed decision? And does it fit in with my calorie, sodium, fat count, etc?
