Food Friday-Oven Fried Chicken

I got this recipe from the Taste of Home website. I thought it was a great alternative to the fried chicken that we Southerners love so much. I used chicken breasts instead of drumsticks and thighs though and it was still great. I also used a real egg instead of egg substitute.

2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup crushed cornflakes
1 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
4 chicken drumsticks (4 ounces each), skin removed
4 bone-in chicken thighs (6 ounces), skin removed
3/4 cup egg substitute

Drizzle butter in a 13x9x2 baking dish
In a shallow bowl, combine the cornflakes, flour and seasoned salt
Place egg substitute in another shallow bowl
Dip chicken in egg substitute, then roll in cornflake mixture
Arrange chicken in prepared dish, meatier side down
Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 20 minutes. Turn chicken over; bake 10-15 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 180°
