Mom's Oh So Fabulous Chicken

My mom created this for dinner one night 15 years ago.  I fell in love with it! Then I sort of forgot about it! I recently remembered and tried to replicate it! It came out just as delicious as I recalled!

It's tender, flavorful, and just FABULOUS!

The sauce contains three ingredients:  Miracle Whip, honey, and mustard.

Always use chicken tenderloins.  They never come out tough or dry like chicken breast can.

After seasoning the chicken on one side with Lawry's All Season and pepper, place seasoned side down in a hot pan with a little bit of oil. (I like Spectrum Organic Canola Oil.)  Season the top side and spread some of the sauce. Then cover and cook for several minutes or until the underside of chicken is golden.  What makes this chicken so moist is trapping in the heat!

Crunch up cornflakes and mix with a tish of melted butter.

After a a few minutes of cooking, flip chicken over. It should have some nice golden color.  Yes, my pan is a little crowded, but it worked!

Spread some more sauce on top.

Sprinkle on the cornflake mixture. Cover again and cook until chicken is no longer pink when you make a slice in the thickest part.

Try it and let me know what you think! 



1 cup Miracle Whip
2 tsp. yellow mustard
2 T. honey

1 lb. chicken tenderloins
Lawry's All Season
1 T. oil


3/4 cup cornflakes, crushed
 1/2 T. butter, melted

Mix sauce ingredients in a bowl until combined. In another bowl mix cornflakes and butter. Season one side of chicken with Lawry's and pepper.  Heat oil in a pan over medium heat.  Place chicken in pan seasoned side down. Season top side of chicken and spread with some half of the sauce.  Cook for several minutes covered until bottom side is golden.  Flip chicken over and spread on the rest of the sauce; sprinkle with cornflake mixture.  Cover, and cook until chicken is cooked through. 

Watch the chicken carefully and try not to overcook.  Tenderloins usually cook pretty quickly!
