  • 2 - 2 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast (cut into slices or strips) or tenderloins
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. poultry seasoning, optional
  • 4 1/2 c. crushed Rice Krispies
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 4 Tbs. melted butter


  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Line a baking pan (or cookie sheet with sides) with aluminum foil and spray it with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the egg and milk, add flour, salt, garlic powder, pepper, and poultry seasoning. Whisk until creamy.
    3/4 c. milk, 3/4 c. all-purpose flour, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. black pepper, 1 tsp. poultry seasoning, optional, 1 large egg
  • Place the Rice Krispies into a ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin. It's ok if some whole pieces remain, you don't want to turn them into powder.
    4 1/2 c. crushed Rice Krispies
  • Place the crushed Krispies into a small bowl. Add the paprika and mix.
    1 tsp. paprika
  • Dip each piece of chicken into the batter to cover. Then dip the battered chicken into the crushed rice crispies. Cover completely.
    2 - 2 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast (cut into slices or strips) or tenderloins
  • Place the pieces of chicken into the prepared pan. Then drizzle the chicken with the melted butter.
    4 Tbs. melted butter
  • Bake, uncovered, for about 30 - 40 minutes. (This will depend on how big your pieces of chicken are.)


If you buy huge chicken breasts, slice them in half and then cut them into smaller pieces. It's better to have pieces about the size of chicken strips.
You could also chop the Rice Krispies in a food processor, but it will only take a few pulses. Don't chop them into a fine powder, as the Rice Krispie pieces will add an extra crunch.
