Rice Krispie Crusted Chicken
So yesterday I had some whole chicken legs and decided to go into "invention mode" again. I came up with an idea I THOUGHT the whole time I was cooking, that I was inventing...only to discover after Googling it out of pure curiosity later, that many people already do what I tried. The GREAT thing though, was that no one's recipes that I read did it like me and used my seasoning method, so turns out my recipe IS original...so here it is...
Pour 1 1/2 cups of Rice Krispies into a mixing bowl. Using a potato masher, crush them a tad, but not completely into crumbs...leave a lot of it whole. Add 3 packets of Oodles of Noodles Beef flavoring (save the plain noodles for something at another time...there are many uses.) Add a tsp. of garlic salt, a tsp. of black pepper, a tsp. of Italian seasoning, and 2 heaping T. flour. Mix it all up and pour it into a gallon size zip lock food storage or freezer bag. In another bowl place 4 heaping T. real mayo and 3 T. Italian salad dressing. Mix well.
One by one, coat your chicken legs (or breasts, cutlets, whatever you're using) with the mayo mixture and drop into the bag, seal and shake and squeeze until well coated. Then place into a baking dish VERY lightly coated with non-stick spray. Bake for the normal amount of time that you would for the size/type of pieces you are using.
This turned out REALLY TASTY! Next time just for shits and giggles I'm going to use COCOA Krispies and see what happens!!
