Total Preparation / Cooking time: 30 minutes


Serves: 10 (with 1 Tablespoon mustard per serving)


  • 6 cups Rice Chex
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • ¾ teaspoon pepper
  • 3 pounds chicken breast
  • ½ cup canola oil

Honey Mustard

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Slice chicken breasts into smaller strips (about 5-6 slices per breast). Put Rice Chex, salt, and pepper into a gallon-size Ziploc bag, and seal well. Place bag on a cutting board and carefully crush with a rolling pin. (Alternatively, you may use a food processor to crush and mix the Rice Chex, salt, and pepper). Pour crushed cereal mix into a bowl and canola oil into a separate bowl. Dip each chicken strip into the oil and then roll in the crushed cereal mix. Place chicken strips onto baking tray and bake for 10-15 minutes until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Mix all honey mustard ingredients in a small bowl until well blended and serve with the chicken strips.
