Colossal Crunch Chicken Fingers

Fried chicken is one of my favorite comfort foods, especially if its from KFC...and part of the reason for that is THAT I DON'T have to cook it, but this recipe is one of my favorite "stay at home" fried chicken recipes (since I don't have the secret recipe for KFC chicken). The Colossal Crunch Cereal gives it just enough "sweetness" to make you want another bite, and then another and another. I love to dip my chicken strips into sauces...many for that matter (but not at the same time). Any sauce ranging from Bleu Cheese, to Ranch, to BBQ, to Honey Mustard...all of which I love. Next time you are craving (or even if you're not) fried chicken, give this recipe a try. It will melt in your mouth.

Colossal Crunch Chicken Fingers
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
3 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 c. buttermilk
2 c. flour
2 t. salt
1 t. pepper
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. onion powder
6 c. Colossal Crunch Cereal, crushed
Oil for frying

Pre-heat oil in a large skillet (I put in 1" of oil) or electric frying pan.

In a small bowl combine flour and seasonings. Mix well. In a separate bowl mix buttermilk and eggs. In another mixing bowl place crushed cereal.

In small batches, put chicken into flour, then milk and egg mixture, then cereal. Place into hot oil. Repeat process until all chicken is cooking. Fry chicken until its golden brown and then turn to the other side, repeat process until chicken is done....I cooked mine (flipping several times) about 15 minutes. Depending on the size and thickness of your strips it could take more or less time. When chicken is done, place on a plate covered with a paper towel, to drain the oil from it. Serve with your favorite dipping sauces or eat it plain, its scrumptious either way.

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce:
1 c. mayonnaise
2/3 c. mustard
6 T. honey

Mix mayo and mustard until well blended then add honey and stir. Add more or less of whatever you want depending on your taste...I liked mine as is.

Honey BBQ Dipping Sauce:
1/2 c. BBQ sauce (your favorite)
1 c. Mayonnaise
4 T. honey

Mix mayo and BBQ sauce until well blended then add honey and stir. YUM!

This chicken is really good with a Bleu Cheese Dipping Sauce as well, if you like Bleu Cheese! I had a recipe for it, but for the life of me I can't find where I put it! WHEN I DO find it, I will post it because its delish! Anyway...until then...try these out and ENJoY!

Happy Cooking~
