Cap’n Crunch Chicken

I love discovering quick and simple recipes so when I heard Kellie Rasberry from Kidd Kraddick in the Morning mention Cap’n Crunch Chicken, I immediately knew that I needed to look into it. The name instantly intrigued me, especially since I had two boxes of Cap’n Crunch needing to be used. She said that Planet Hollywood served it and it tasted amazing, so when I got home I did a little bit of research and discovered that I had most of the ingredients that Cap’n Crunch Chicken takes. I must warn you that I had to alter some of the cereal but in the end, I think my Cap’n Crunch Chicken turned out amazing!

As I was gathering the ingredients for Cap’n Crunch Chicken I realized that I did not have regular Cap’n Crunch nor did I have regular cornflakes, so I used what I had; which was Cap’n Crunch Berries and Frosted Flakes. This is such an easy dish to make and it’s a great dish if you have kids that love chicken with a hint of sweetness, but also if you have extra boxes of cereal laying around.

  1. This sounds like a dish that my kids would totally be into. I would probably even have them help me make it.

  2. This has got to be the most interesting breading I’ve ever seen for chicken. It actually sounds like it would be amazing. I mean most of the dipping sauces we use for chicken are sweet anyway.

  3. What a fun recipe! I will have to save this one for my husband. Never would have thought of this combination but it certainly makes for an interesting recipe!

  4. I know a certain little boy that would love these! I never really thought about putting this kind of cereal on chicken. I thought it might be too sweet, but it might just be the right kind of sweetness.

  5. This looks interesting!! I’ll have to try it. My kids love the cereal…shoot…who am I kidding, I love the cereal too!

  6. Oh, wow! This is so creative. I’ve only tried using cornflakes on my chicken before, haha.

  16. Never in a million years would I have thought to use captain crunch. I mean I have seen corn flakes and other mild cereals used but this is a new spin.

  17. This looks delicious. I love that it has bits of color in it from the cereal. I will have to make this my kids will love it.

  18. Well, that’s very interesting! I honestly don’t know if I’d be brave enough to try it! But I know my hubby would.

  26. Cap’n Crunch with chicken?! I think this sounds like a chicken & waffles so it must be yummy!

  27. I never though to cook with Captain Crunch! That looks really tasty!

  28. I can totally see using the plain Capn Crunch, but the thought of the berries kinda makes me a bit skeptical. However, if you say it’s good then I’ll have to try it sometime. Don’t’ knock it until you try it, right?

      Oh it’s good! I think the berries just add color.. I think the berries taste the same as the yellow parts.

  29. This is very interesting. I’ve never had captain crunch in my life, but I do love fried chicken and i’d be willing to give this a try.

  30. The name of this caught my attention too! It sounds pretty interesting. I would be willing to try it!

  31. I just don’t even know what to do with this recipe! I can’t decide if I LOVE IT or if I’m scared of cooking with cereal! LOL

  32. Wow, we like Captain Crunch but have never cooked with it. My kids would like this.

  33. Wow, this is an ingenious idea! It looks amazing!

  34. Hmmm this is a really interesting dinner. I bet the sweetness from the cereals though are actually really good!

  35. This Crap`n Crunch Chicken looks really delicious! I’m sure my daughter will love it, so have to give it a try!

  36. What!!! Doing it just to see the looks on the kids’ faces is reason enough to get this recipe going! I love this idea!

  37. What a great idea : I never thought adding cereals in my chicken. This is so neat.

  38. My mother smashed up Cap n’Crunch and used it to bread chicken (the pb is tasty) and fish (using the plain kind) so this brings back so many memories.

  39. What a creative and festive dinner that everyone can enjoy! I have to say I have never tried it, but use cornflakes as my go for baked chicken recipe. I’ll have to try this!

  46. Whoa. My mind is blown right now. Cap’n crunch is my fave and so is chicken! I never would think to combine! Yummmm

  47. I’ve been wanting to try this recipe out for while. It’s definitely a great way to bring some flavor to your chicken!

  48. There is a restaurant on Nantucket that does this, but they use it for their French Toast. I am ALL about extra crunch and random recipes! 🙂

  49. Now that is interesting! I never would have thought of this combo!

  50. This is such an interesting recipe idea, I honestly never thought to use this cereal with chicken for a dinner meal! I must try it, I bet it will be delicious and maybe just maybe my picky eater will try it 😉

  51. Jennifer Williams says

    My kids would love this. Nothing like having their favorite cereal help make dinner. I would have never thought to make this.

  52. Now this is very new to me! I never knew there was a recipe to cook Cap’n Crunch with chicken- brilliant! Pinning!

  53. Oh, I could totally get my kids to eat this if I used the Cap’n Crunch with berries! Looks great!

  54. I have heard of using corn flakes for chicken before. Captain Crunch that is amazing! I’ll have to tell my daughter about this!

  55. Aimee…your recipes always make me smile LOL I LOVE THIS! I know people who have done the corn flakes, but never Cap’n Crunch. You’re AMAZING!

  56. Cereal is so versatile! I haven’t bought Cap N Crunch in years, but I bet it makes a tasty coating to that chicken and helps keep it moist, tender and delicious.

  57. I instantly saw this and thought “Wow, I haven’t had this in a long time”.. It is generally the only time I buy Cap N Crunch.

  58. That chicken looks really good! I bet my husband would love it as well (he LOVES cereal haha!)


  59. I love Captain Crunch and chicken… but together? I think I need to try it to decide.

  60. This has always been one of my favorite cereals but I have never thought to use it for cooking. I love this recipe.

  61. The kids loved when I made chicken with just crushed up corn flakes this is going to be a lot of fun to try it

  62. Such a unique recipe. Reminds me of the idea behind Chicken & Waffles.

  63. Yum. Sounds unique but yet tasty. I assume you would probably be able to bake this also?

  64. That would definitely trick my nephews into eating more chicken! 🙂

  65. Oh boy. This sounds completely crazy but intriguing. I am going to have to try it!

  66. This sounds so absolutely insane that it has to be good! I love cap ‘n crunch 🙂
