Tips
Success
Coating the chunks is a snap when you work quickly with one fork in each hand. Drop the chunks in the butter; turn to coat, then lift into crumbs with one fork. Use the other hand (and fork) to turn and coat in the crumbs – voila, neatly coated chicken chunks!
Serve-With
Serve these crispy nuggets with purchased dipping sauces—barbecue, honey-mustard or sweet-and-sour—just like your favorite drive-thru!
Preparation Directions
1.Heat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Crush cereal. (To easily crush cereal, place in plastic bag or between sheets of waxed paper, and crush with rolling pin.)
2.In medium bowl, stir together crushed cereal, cheese, salt, seasoned salt, paprika and garlic powder. In small bowl, stir together melted butter and milk. Dip chicken into butter mixture, then roll in cereal mixture to coat evenly. Place on cookie sheet.
3.Bake 9 minutes; turn nuggets over. Bake about 8 minutes longer or until coating is light golden brown and chicken is no longer pink in center.
