If you follow the recipe the way it is this is a 1 however with the addition of the following you will have better results. I based my rating on those additions. You need to make the Captain Crunch cereal very very fine. With that also grind up very fine regular Corn Flakes. Mix those together. Also make an egg wash to dip the chicken into. Finally mix a little flour garlic powder onion powder and freshly ground black pepper together. Order should be: egg wash flour mixture cereal mixture. Also I fry my tenders instead of baking them.

Okay guys I got it. This recipe rocks!!! I read some of the reviews on this recipe and the one thing I noticed is when people said that they had a problem making the captain crunch stick to the chicken. Well I solved it! On this site there is a recipe for oven fried chicken. the recipe calls for crushed ritz crackers and mayonaise yes mayonaise. Well after cooking it I found that it really makes sense. Mayo is an oil and it helps the crushed crackers stick to the chicken. Well that is exactly what I did here. I crushed the captain crunch in a blender and coated the chicken (bone in)with the mayonaise and then coated it with the captain crunch and basically oven fried it like shake n bake for 45 min. and BAM! there you got it captain crunch oven fried chicken. The flavor it incredible if you choose to make this do like me and get past the mayo make it and enjoy it. Trust me your family will love this. Read More

I've been making this for years but make sure you coat your chicken in ranch dressing prior to mixing it up with the Captain Crunch. It gives it a sweet flavor and texture. Also instead of Captain Crunch - try Ritz crackers smashed up. But don't forget the Ranch Dressing.... Read More

Great recipe-not as sweet as you think it will turn out to be. I needed to coat only two chicken breasts and ended up only using about 1 cup of cereal. Dipping the chicken in egg first helps them to be evenly coated. Read More
