  • 12 chicken tenders, halved
  • 1 cup Cap'n Crunch cereal
  • 1 cup crispy rice cereal
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 1/2 cups canola oil
  • Green Onion Honey Dip, recipe follows
  • Put the two cereals into a gallon sized bag and seal. Place on a flat surface and, using a rolling pin, crush the cereal until it's still slightly chunky. Pour into a medium sized bowl and add the flour, salt and pepper and mix to combine.

    Dip the chicken pieces into the beaten eggs one at a time and transfer to the breading mix. Coat well and refrigerate until the oil heats.

    Pour the oil into a large saucepan and place over medium high heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Test the oil by dropping a bread cube in -- if it brown within 1 minute the oil is ready. Drop the chicken nuggets into the hot oil 4 pieces at a time and cook 2 minutes, or until the breading is golden and the chicken is cooked through. Repeat with the remaining chicken nuggets. Keep warm in a low oven until ready to serve.
