This was very good. I didn’t have crisp rice cereal so I used rice chex mix otherwise I followed the recipe exact. Easy to make, I coated the chicken and then put it in the refrigerator for about an hour to let the crumbs adhere to the meat. Instead of baking I used my air fryer. It was moist and nice and crispy.

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.

My husband and son just though that this recipe was ok. I asked my family would they like for me to make it again they replied yes it was good.

So easy and delicious! I used chicken tenders and baked them 35 minutes in a glass pan. The whole family loved them.

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!
