Crispy Baked Chicken Coated with Potato Flakes Recipe

I've always been a huge fan of fried chicken, but I don't really like frying foods at home. This recipe is a great substitute and turns out nice and crispy. The prep is fast, which is great too. You can make any side dish to go with it. We love mashed potatoes, brown sugar glazed carrots, or rice. It's a total comfort food. The leftovers are great too for chicken sandwiches or salads. Enjoy!!
