 Ingredients List

  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 skinless chicken breast fillets
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups Cap”™n Crunch cereal
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • ½ cup Wondra flour
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • ~~~~~~~ Creole Mustard Sauce ~~~~~~~
  • 2 tablespoons Grey Poupon Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • ~~~~~~~ Honey Mustard Sauce ~~~~~~~
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Mix together and chill in refrigerator.


Cut each chicken fillet, lengthwise, into 5 long slices pounded flat (chicken fingers). Put in a bowl, cover with buttermilk, and marinate overnight. Just before breading, mix in an egg to the marinade. Smash the Cap”™n Crunch into crumbs using a food processor, or put the cereal into a plastic bag and start pounding. Combine the cereal, crumbs, flour, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Remove chicken from milk and completely coat it with the dry mixture. Discard leftover milk. When the oil is hot, fry the chicken for 4 to 6 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Remove to paper towels or a rack to drain. Serve hot with chilled Creole mustard sauce on the side for dipping. We also dipped it in fry sauce and that was good too.
