Rice Krispy Popcorn Chicken

Rice Krispies give this chicken a light crackle.
Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time13 mins
Total Time33 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 to 1-1/4 lb chicken breast, chopped into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 1/2 cup rice krispies cereal, or any other type of rice cereal
  • 1 1/2 TBS salt
  • 1 1/2 TBS granulated onion
  • 1 1/2 TBS dried oregano
  • 1 TBS granulated garlic
  • 1 TBS cayenne pepper
  • 1 TBS sweet paprika
  • 1 TBS dried thyme
  • olive oil or natural cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425ºF. Grease a baking sheet lightly with olive oil or cooking spray.
  • Crush the cereal slightly by giving it a quick crumble in your hands. There's no need to crush it into a powder. Empty the cereal onto a large dish.
  • Mix in all the herbs and spices in a small bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of the herbs and spices to the cereal and stir everything together. Save the rest of the spice blend for another dish. Be sure to store it in a sealed container.
  • Place several pieces of chicken at a time onto the cereal mixture, and bread all sides of the chicken pieces. Place the breaded pieces on the baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Bake the chicken for about 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Let the popcorn chicken cool for a few minutes and serve immediately for maximum crisp.

Notes

The herbs and spices blend was adapted from the Cajun Spice Mix recipe on the Food Network.
