Note: This recipe appears in the WW New Complete Cookbook. Weight Watchers has done it again with a classic comfort food in making it healthy.  It's a different take on oven-fried chicken and it tastes good. The herbs are the key to making this chicken flavorful. If you don't have cornflakes on hand, use dried panko bread crumbs instead and the chicken will taste just as good. I highly recommend marinating the chicken in the buttermilk 1-24 hours in advance to make the fried chicken even more moist and flavorful.
