For this recipe, I use boneless chicken breasts—one of my favorite quick-cooking cuts of meat. David helps me crumble cereal for the coating. Some of our best quality time is spent in the kitchen.—Coleen Martin, Brookfield, Wisconsin

"I was looking for ways to use up leftover crisp rice cereal and this worked. I didn't think the coating stuck to the chicken well enough. If I use this recipe again, or any other like it, I will coat in flour, then butter, then the coating mixture. That's the only way I know to really make coatings stick."

"I work nights a lot and when I do my husbands idea of cooking dinner is giving my son cereal. So my son loved that I made him rice crispy chicken and I loved when he asked for seconds. I want to try this coating on fish!"
