The Zip on these Strips - Special K Chicken Strips


First off, I need everyone to know who made these strips. They are homemade from a very special person in my life, my Granddad! I swear he makes the best food. You won't have to look far for a good meal when he's around. There's always bread and asparagus to compliment anything. 

But now that that is out of the way, let's take a look at these strips. 

THE LOOK:

As you can see from the strips, the Special K cereal coating does not surround the chicken fully. In most cases, I would believe that whoever made them just didn't use enough egg before putting their stripes in the coating, BUT in this case, it works out since if the whole chicken was coated I feel like you wouldn't have enough chicken flavor to overcome the cereal. They are lovingly cooked and have a nice lightly toasted look. 

THE TASTE:

I seriously don't know how my Granddad does it, but he always has the best chicken strips. They are so tender and juicy and easy to pull apart. He swears he just uses Tyson, but next time I visit I might do some snooping. The cereal adds a different kind of sweetness than with my previous entry for Honey Bunches of Oats cereal, so it is definitely worth trying if you're looking for something different. Its a more subtle sweetness that sticks with you. There might have been some other seasonings thrown in but I just couldn't distinguish them from the overall delicious taste. I think I ended up having four of them.

Overall, next time I come for a visit I am definitely asking for a recipe!
