amazinggg! this combination of walnuts and rice krispies is such a different texture, my boyfriend went crazy over it...the only thing is, i would add a little less garlic powder bc it was a little too strong once cooked...but other than that it was FABULOUS!

This is a really great way to eat chicken! The cereal gives it that great crunch factor and the walnuts give it a sorta sweet, nutty taste. I do feel there needs to be more walnuts however. I myself at least doubled the amount even and would maybe use a bit more next time. I was somewhat skeptical that there were so few spices, but it seemed to be plenty and they cooked up perfectly in the stated amount of time. NIce and moist! Also VERY simple to make!
