This is a revolutionary idea!!! I think people have crusted chicken with all sorts of cereals but it never crossed my mind to use Cap’n Crunch. Why? I have no idea, because it’s genius. Some of my very favorite recipes come out of this book and I would highly recommend buying it. Just click this link for the Pioneer Woman’s Cookbook Come and Get It. This recipe is on page 102
Cap’n Crunch Chicken Strips
Delicious Scale- 10 out of 10
Husband Delicious Scale- 8.5 out of 10 (it just threw him off a little that it was sweet but he really liked it)
Prep Time- 30 minutes
Clean up- three dishes
This recipe is so easy you just dip chicken tenders in a flour mixture with salt and pepper, then into an egg mixture and last into crushed up Cap’n Crunch. Pan fry until it’s a crispy golden brown. I am being 100% honest in saying this is the best chicken tender I have ever had. I also love the added sweetness from the cereal and the crunch that you get is unlike any other. This is worth driving to the store tomorrow just to make this.
Your kids will have a hay day that you put cereal on chicken! So get them involved with crunching up the cereal. What kid doesn’t like banging things.
