Sam Choy's Captain Crunch Chicken

Recipe by alligirl

Taken from Time to marinate IS NOT included in prep/cook time. Posted for ZWT. ETA: I have now made this chicken, tho I used boneless skinless breasts, as it is what I had on hand. The Cap'n Crunch cereal makes a tasty breading, and the marinade imparts a nice underlying flavor.

Well I am giving this 5 on a number of reasons first of all I used chicken breast as the DH hates thigh meat which I would have preferred and well he his not enhanced with cereal as a crumb coating but he liked this one but please note we cannot get Cap'n Crunch Cereal here in Australia so I used Kellogs Special K which has a much lower GI factor in Australia to America (around mid range here in Australia) which I processed in the food processor to as fine as I could but even then I would say was grainy but still crumbed well. The marinade made the difference in the recipe and I think more than 30 minutes would do it better justice especially if doing chicken breasts. Anyway my chicken breasts were large about 275g to 300g and at 45 minutes at 175C fan forced oven were perfect and moist and the crumbs nice and crunchy. I served for the DH, DS and myself with recipe #175979 and the DM got ranch dressing and we all enjoyed our chicken, thank you alligirl, made for Everyday A Holiday tag game.
