What the Beck???

J.K. Rowling Quote:

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location: Cap’n Crunch Chicken Strips
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 331 calories, for a 3 piece serving.. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

I am embarrassed to admit that I had never tasted Cap’n Crunch cereal before making this recipe. I actually made this one for my niece, Maddie, who is a chicken strip freak. She said they were wonderful. We split one before she left, so that I could taste it.  I kept some of the cereal to make the other half of the recipe, but unfortunately, I ate every bit of the cereal without even using milk. Thank God, I sent the giant box home with Maddie. That is one dangerous box of cereal.

 All I needed for this recipe were chicken tenders, flour, 
eggs, salt and pepper, Cap'n Crunch cereal and vegetable 
oil.  You may want to add a dipping sauce like: ketchup, 
BBQ sauce, or my favorite - honey.

 All I did was dip the strip in the flour, then in the 
beaten egg, and then in the crushed cereal. I fried 
it up in vegetable oil, and then drained the strips on 
a paper towel. I did lightly salt the pieces when finished. I 
didn't crushed the cereal as much as I should have, 
but I'll do better next time!!!

My nieces: Molly, who just gave birth to my sweet, newest great nephew, Hudson, and Maddie on the 
right who is due with my first great niece, in July.
Maddie is the chicken strip freak!!!
