Yum. Chicken.

Quick, tell me what kind of chicken this is:

Do you think it's breaded with...corn flakes? Flour? Corn meal? Bread crumbs?


Would you guess...Captain Crunch cereal? 

Yup. This Captain Crunch cereal.

Before you totally count it out, let me tell you - it's not a sweet chicken and was once featured on Planet Hollywood's menu. Yes, THE Planet Hollywood.

Side note:  So, have you ever heard of a little place called the Hard Rock Cafe? Well, we went there once (Aspen?) and while purchasing a watch there, I told them that we had one near my hometown. Yeah - it turned out I was thinking about the ROAD KILL CAFE. Not the same.

ANYWAY...back to the case at hand...

This is REALLY a good recipe and if you make the creole sauce, it's ... oh my gosh...delicious. 

So check it out - it's not only a 30 minute meal, but it's yummy! 

Planet Hollywood’s Captain Crunch Chicken

2 cups Captain Crunch Cereal
1 ½ cup Corn flakes
1 tsp Onion powder
1 egg
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp Black pepper
1 cup flour
2 pounds Chicken breast cut in 1-oz. tenders
Vegetable oil for frying

Coarsely grind or crush the two cereals and set aside. Beat the egg with milk and set aside. Stir together the flour, onion and garlic powders and black pepper. Set this aside also. Dip the chicken pieces into the seasoned flour. Move around to coat well, then shake off the excess flour. Dip into the egg wash, coating well, then dip into the cereal mixture, coating well. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet to 325˚. Drop coated chicken tenders carefully into the hot oil and cook until golden brown and fully cooked, 3 to 5 minutes depending on size. Drain and serve immediately with Creole mustard sauce.

Don't like frying? Fear not - you can also bake it at 350 for 15-20 minutes, depending on the size of your tenders. 

Planet Hollywood Creole Mustard Sauce

¼ cup Creole style mustard
1 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp yellow mustard
½ tsp cider vinegar
1 dash Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp horseradish
1 tsp red wine vinegar
½ tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp finely chopped celery
1 tsp water
1 tsp finely chopped onion
½ tsp salt
1 Tbsp green onions -- sliced in ¼" pieces
1 Tbsp crushed garlic packed in oil
1 tsp chopped green bell pepper -- (fine)

Mix all ingredients together thoroughly. If can’t find Creole style mustard, use spicy brown mustard.

All I have to say is YUM!
