Honey Nut Chex Chicken Tenders with Honey Mustard

I had a desire to make some kind of chicken nugget or tender for dinner tonight – and as I puttered around our beautiful kitchen I decided that bread crumbs sounded so BORING.  Then I thought to how I love using corn flakes to bread chicken – but that sounded boring too and I didn’t have any anyway!  Low and behold, a lovely unopened box of Honey Nut Chex graced my spinning pantry cabinet :)  It was perfect!  And made me think of one thing and one thing only: Planet Hollywood Captain Crunch Chicken.

I’m not even sure if Planet Hollywood is in business or makes that.  But I always ordered it when we went into the city for class trips in middle/high school.  Mmmmm.  This was a great plan!!  I found a recipe to adapt from and off I went!

Honey Nut Chex Chicken Tenders

Honey Nut Chex Chicken Tenders


  • Two chicken breasts, filleted and then sliced into tenders
  • 3 cups of Honey Nut Chex
  • flour (for dredging)
  • 1 egg
  • splash of milk
  • salt and pepper
  • paprika
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • vegetable oil


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Crush Chex in a food processor until you have little crumbs.
  • Pour the crumbs into a shallow bowl and season with paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder. Stir about 1/4 cup of vegetable oil into the bowl to make the mixture a little moist – it will help it stick to your chicken and stay put!
  • Whisk the egg and milk together in another shallow bowl.
  • Place the flour in a third shallow bowl.
  • Cover each chicken piece in flour, dip in egg, and then dip into the Chex mixture and place on baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes.  Mine took almost 20 minutes as my chicken was a little frozen when I started.  Serve with honey mustard sauce…

Easy Honey Mustard Sauce

This is soo easy to make in a mason jar!  Combine mayo, regular yellow mustard, honey, and a touch of lemon juice and spicy brown mustard in the jar.  Throw the lid on, and shake, shake, shake!  I don’t have exact measurements.  If it tastes too egg-y, add more mustard or honey.  If it tasted too sweet, add more mustard.  I hope you like it :)
