Cap ' n Crunch Chicken Strips

My husband bought me what I think is the coolest cooking book ever, America's Most Wanted Recipes. Inside you will find some of today's top restaurants sharing their most popular recipes, I have found so many items that I just simply have to try. Like the dinner we had just last night, at first I thought it sounded a little strange but after thinking about it more it really did sound good. This recipe comes to us from Planet was fabulous!

2 C. - Crushed Cap'n Crunch Cereal
1 1/2 C. - Crushed Corn Flakes Cereal
1 - Egg
1 C. - Milk
1 C. - Flour
1/2 Tbs. - Onion Powder
1/2 Tbs. - Garlic Powder
2 Lbs. - Chicken Breast (cut into strips)
Vegetable Oil - (for frying)

Combine the cereal in a large bowl, beat the egg with the milk and set aside. Stir together the flour and spices then set aside. Dip the chicken into the flour mixture and shake off the excess, then dip into the egg mixture and then fully coat the strips in the cereal mixture. Set into a preheated deep fryer set at 320 degrees and cook for 4 minutes or until golden brown. When done drain on some paper towel and enjoy. My husband really loved them with a side of honey mustard sauce we created for dipping.

Spicy Brown Honey Mustard Sauce

1 Tbs. - Spicy Brown Mustard
2 Tbs. - Honey

Mix the 2 items together and let them sit in the fridge to mingle the flavors while you are cooking the chicken.

I LOVE making these, but found a tip that works WONDERFULLY for keeping the coating on the chicken. Try taking that honey mustard and combining it with an equal amount of plain yogurt. Dip your chicken into it and THEN dredge in the coating. YUM-O!
