Tastes like chicken

2 08 2007

I just made this chicken for dinner last night, and yum! So I need to share. The secret is in the sauce… well, not the sauce- the coating. ‘The secet is in the coating’ sounds dumb. This particular chicken has a crushed… get ready for it… Cap’n Crunch coating. Can you think of anything yummier than that?!? What? What’s that? You CAN? You think potato chips would be yummier, do you? Huh. Well, just so happens I have a recipe for chicken made with a crushed up sour cream and onion potato chip coating, as well.

Man, there’s just something about pregnancy that makes me want to coat chicken with all the Oreos and Butterfingers and FATFATFAT I can and fry it up! Ok, maybe that’s taking it a step too far, but seriously, I might be onto something with the Butterfingers…

Anyway, here are the recipes- both of them. Because why not? Neither one is even a little bit good for you, let’s not pretend. But that didn’t stop me.

1 pkg chicken, cut into nugget-sized pieces

2 C Cap’n Crunch cereal, crushed

1/2 C Crispix cereal, crushed

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp pepper

1 egg

3 tbsp milk

vegetable oil (for frying)

Preheat the oil over a medium heat. Combine the cereals, onion and garlic powder and pepper. Combine the egg, slightly beaten, with the milk. Dip each piece of chicken into the egg/milk, then coat in the cereal mixture. Place in the hot oil for a few minutes per side, til the chicken is no longer pink in the center and is brown and crispy. Remove from oil to a paper towel.

Potato Chip Chicken**

2 C crushed sour cream & onion potato chips

1 egg

2 tbsp milk

1 pkg chicken, cut into nugget-sized pieces

Crush the potato chips in a baggie or bowl. Add the milk to the (beaten) egg in a small bowl. Dip the chicken in the egg/milk, then cover with the crushed potato chips. Place on baking sheet that’s been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for about 15 minutes at 350°.

*I was originally calling it Sweet and Crunchy Chicken, but after our experience eating it last night, the name has been officially changed.

**This is basically a default recipe; you could substitute the sour cream & onion chips for any flavor chips, or anything, really. Like Butterfingers.

that’s just like the corn flake chicken, remember that ?

Of course; I make it every once in a while. I just didn’t mention it since corn flakes don’t fit in with my fattening-things-you-can-coat-chicken-with theme.
