I discovered these in Cancun on Spring Break. My friend Dawn and I stayed across the street from a Planet Hollywood and had dinner there the first night. The waitress said we should try these and we were hooked. They are DELICIOUS! I hope you enjoy them! The recipe below is not exact to what they serve, I am sure they fry them, these are baked, and I am sure they use a lot of other ingredients but these are still tasty.
Recipe for the chicken fingers…serves 2-4 (pan fry then bake)
- Chicken Cutlet tenders (1 packet is good for 2-4 people)
- 2 cups Cap’N Crunch
- 1.5 cups Corn Flakes
- 1 cup milk
- 1-2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- dash of pepper
Heat oven to 325 degrees…
Mix together the Captain Crunch and the Corn Flakes in a mixer until crushed (like bread crumbs) add in the onion powder, garlic powder and pepper-put all this in 1 dish. Combine the egg and milk and put in another dish. Dip the chicken in the egg/milk mixture then coat in the cereal mixture.
Heat olive oil in a fry pan (just enough to coat the pan and make the chicken a bit brown on the outside) place chicken in pan and heat on each side for roughly 1 minute until the coating is a bit brown. Then transfer to a baking dish and bake for 15-20 minutes or until done.
Dipping Sauce: mix the below together and use as a dip…I played around with the ingredients, the below is not too strong or too mayonnaise tasting. I suggest tasting it as you go along and find what you like best.
These would also be good in a ranch or honey mustard dip or with no sauce
- 6 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
- 9 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
- 3 Teaspoon creamy style horseradish
- 3 Teaspoon honey
- 3 Teaspoon Yellow Mustard
- I like to add a dash of hot sauce

Greetings from near Geneva Lauren!! 🙂 I had been making “cornflake” chicken for the kids anyway, but I added in another cereal (not Cap’n Crunch, but a swiss equiv!) and the onion and garlic powder and boy they were good! Kids LOVED them! Thank you so much! Hope all is well with you and yours, Lucy xx
