  • 2 pounds boneless chicken breasts or thighs
    (you can use skin on or off, but I used skin off)

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

  • 3 cups finely crushed corn flakes

  • 3 tablespoons whole wheat flour

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

  • extra virgin olive oil, for brushing

Hot Honey

  • 6 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 2-3 teaspoons cayenne pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • kosher salt


  1. Add the chicken to a gallon size zip top bag. Pour the buttermilk and salt over the chicken. Toss well, cover and refrigerate 20 minutes or overnight.

  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

  3. Add the corn flake crumbs, flour, thyme, and a pinch of salt to a medium sized bowl. Stir to combine.

  4. Remove each piece of chicken from the buttermilk, and dredge through the crumbs, pressing gently to adhere. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all the chicken has been used. Make sure not to crowd your pan, if necessary use two baking sheets. Lightly brush the chicken with olive oil.

  5. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, then flip the chicken over and continue cooking another 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. If using thighs, you may need to cook the chicken a little longer 

  6. Meanwhile, make the hot honey. Melt together the butter, honey, cayenne, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, and a pinch of salt. 

  7. Brush or drizzle the chicken generously with hot honey and serve warm Enjoy!

  • 1 (16 ounce) package phyllo dough

  • 1 pound chopped nuts

  • 1 cup butter

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ cup honey


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).

  2. Butter a 9x13 inch pan (bottom and sides).

  3. While the oven heats, mix the chopped nuts with cinnamon and set aside.

  4. Unroll phyllo dough, cutting to fit the pan, and cover with a dampened cloth to keep from drying out as you assemble.

  5. Begin with two sheets of dough in pan, buttering thoroughly between each layer. Repeat this process until you have 8 sheets.

  6. Sprinkle 2 - 3 tablespoons of nut mixture on top of your base. Top with two sheets of dough, butter as before, add nuts, repeating the process until there are 6 - 8 sheets left.

  7. Layer the remaining 6-8 sheets as you layered the base, this will create the top crust.

  8. Using a sharp knife cut into diamond or square shapes all the way to the bottom of the pan.
    (To achieve the diamond pattern, begin with three cuts leaving 4 long rows, then cut diagonally to desired shape.)

  9. Bake for approximately 50 minutes or until golden brown.

  10. While baking, make the sauce.

  11. Boil sugar and water until sugar is melted into a syrup.

  12. Add vanilla and honey, simmer and stir for roughly 20 minutes.

  13. Once baking is complete, remove the baklava from oven and immediately spoon sauce over it.

  14. Let cool uncovered, it gets soggy wrapped up, and enjoy!

Note: This is a great recipe to make ahead and freeze for family, friends, and visitors.
