Planet Hollywood Captain Crunch Chicken

"This is great and a real kid pleaser. The creole mustard sauce sets off the sweetness of the chicken just right. DH saw a demonstration of the recipe on an early morning show and searched the recipe out for me."

  1. We are making this today for dinner. So glad I googled and found your recipe. A restaurant by me serves chicken crunch salad, sandwich and jumbo shrimp. The shrimp is served with orange marmalade for dipping. Delicious !
  2. My family loved these paired with homemade waffles. Will be a regular at my table. ??
  3. I liked this a lot! The breading was sweet and crunchy! As far as the meat itself, even with extra spices in the flour, the chicken was moist but a bit on the bland side. I did make a sweet honey mustard dip to compliment the crunchy sweetness of the tenders & this seemed to give the meat the punch it needed to spruce up the taste. I couldn't make the Creole dip since I was lacking a few ingredients but the hm ended up going with the meat fine...I would definitely make this again :) Only took away 1 star because the meat was bland & needed something extra, otherwise this recipe is a keeper ;)
  4. The husband worked @ planet Hollywood back in the day and wanted me to try. They turned out great! Kiddos loved them too... will add to my recipe box for the future.. cheers!
  5. This was wonderful! My entire family made it. I would double the recipe as they go fast. Delicious!!!


  1. Tried substituting 1/2 of the corn flakes with frosted corn flakes. I thought it tasted closer to the original Cap’N Crunch Chicken Fingers I had.


<p>I am one of the early members of Zaar joining in October 2001. It was instantly my favorite site even though there were only about 5000 recipes. Back then the original owners Troy and Gay ran the site and they had a lot of interaction with the members. I miss them. <br /> <br />Through the years it still remains to this day my favorite go to site and the one that I send all of my friends and family to when they need anything.</p> 8724616"
