Cap'n Crunch Chicken

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Tearanii

This is a copycat to Planet Hollywoods Cap'n Crunch Chicken. The first time I made it, I burned it, and we could barely eat it. The second time I made it, it came out perfect and boy is it good! We enjoy ours with my homemade honey-mustard sauce. They make the best combo!

The first time I made it, the breading didn't stick well and it was too sweet for our taste. From thereon in, I used 4 cups corn flakes, 2 cups Cap'n Crunch, and doubled the other ingredients; then allowed prepared chicken to set on a wire cooling rack for 15-30 minutes. This recipe also works well baked at 400* F for 20 minutes on a cookie sheet sprayed with PAM instead of fried in oil. Great results; a frequent request from my DH and teens!!
