Ree Drummond uses sweet crunchy grains in her Easy Crunchy Chicken Fingers recipe
Drummond wrote about his Cap Crunch Chicken Strips recipe in a 2016 blog post leading lady Website. “Awkwardness makes the world go round! And that’s certainly true with these crunchy, slightly sweet chicken strips, a version of the famous chicken that originated years ago at the Planet Hollywood restaurant,” she wrote. The minute I heard about their chicken strips, I was curious. I’ve been a fan of sugary cereals all my life. Don’t tell my kids.”
leading lady The star continued, “The breading for the chicken is – get ready – cap crunch, and even though it’s sweet as all get-out, once you incorporate the chicken and something to balance things out salt, the result is a super delicious coating that crisps and slightly caramelizes when frying (because of the sugar). A sprinkle of salt after frying makes everything perfect, and a side of ketchup is absolutely needed .
Drummond Builds a ‘Breading Assembly Line’ and Adds a Fun Sauce
Drummond showed how his crunchy grainy chicken fingers are made during an episode of leading lady. She shares her “breading assembly line” for easy dipping: flour, salt, and pepper in one dish, a beaten egg in another shallow dish, and a third dish with the crunchy breading ingredient.
“Now, for the crazy special ingredients, I’ve got sweet crispy crunchy cereal here,” she explained. He placed it in a plastic bag, sealed it, and used his hand to crush the grain into pieces.
Drummond explained the inspiration behind his recipe, “I once braised chicken in this cereal once and at a restaurant years ago. It’s the funniest breading for chicken, but I’ll tell you how good it is.” Is.” Once it was “mostly broken”, he placed the cereal in another shallow dish.
“And now it’s time to bread this crazy chicken,” Drummond said, explaining how he had cut the chicken breast into strips “so they were nice and thin.” Then leading lady Starr went down its assembly line – first dredging the chicken in flour, then dipping the pieces in eggs, and finally dredging the moistened chicken into crushed cereal pieces until it was “completely coated.” Lets do it.
She ended up breaking up all the pieces of chicken, then dropping them in an iron skillet with vegetable oil over medium heat. “It would probably take me two batches to fry them all,” she explained. “What I love about these chicken tenders is the color — it’s gorgeous.”
Drummond cooks the chicken for 2 to 3 minutes per side. After cooking, Drummond made a “really fun dipping sauce” with ketchup, applesauce and 2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce. “The apple sauce gives the ketchup a bit of sweetness, with a tiny hint of apple flavor.”
The Food Network host’s blog post recommends placing the chicken on a paper towel. “You’ll want to turn them over on paper towels after a minute or two to remove any excess oil from the other side,” she wrote. “And give them a generous sprinkle of salt at this point! That sweet-savory thing is so delicious.”
