Crispy Chicken Recipe

Crispy Chicken Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups crisp rice cereal, coarsely crushed
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)


  • 1. In a shallow bowl, combine cereal, flour and seasonings. Place butter in another shallow bowl. Dip chicken in butter, then roll in cereal mixture.
  • 2. Place in a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking pan. Drizzle with remaining butter. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 170°. Yield: 4 servings.

"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."
