Uncle Sam’s Chicken
DJ was watching football today and saw a commercial for BWW. He wanted chicken–but instead of asking if I wanted to go out, he asked if I would make some chicken strips! Instead of just making chicken, I decided to look for a recipe or method of coating them so they resemble a battered chicken strip.
I did what anyone would do–I turned to Pinterest! As I was looking at a bunch of pictures of cooked chicken, I saw a picture of Uncle Sam’s Cereal. I thought that was odd, but since we use this cereal in our Big Bowl I checked it out.
Here’s the original recipe for Uncle Sam’s Whole Grain Un-fried Chicken by Kelly Turner.
- 1 c Uncle Sam cereal
- 4 Tbsp whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 to 3/4 c almond or coconut milk
- 1 egg
I bet it would taste pretty good with lemon pepper seasoning or Parmesan cheese too! I put all the dry ingredients (the first four) into a ziplock bag and used a rolling pin to crush up the cereal. I tried my food processor first but it didn’t work very well.
Bake at 380 degrees for 45 minutes. I would also recommend flipping them halfway through. I didn’t, and when I took the chicken out the top was dry and crispy (which I wanted) and the bottom was a little soggy, and the coating came off and stuck to the pan quite a bit.
