    Place cereal in zippered plastic bag and crush with your hands until pieces are small.
  • 3
    Add fresh herbs, paprika, garlic powder and seasoned salt to cereal, and toss mixture gently to distribute seasonings. Place in a large bowl.
  • 4
    In a separate bowl, add melted butter, egg whites and milk. Whisk until thoroughly mixed.

    For each chicken breast, dip in butter mixture and then roll in cereal mixture. Double dip in each for better coverage and extra crunch.

  • 7
    Bake in a preheated oven at 350° F for 45 to 60 minutes. If coating starts getting too dark, cover with foil until final 5 minutes of baking.
