Baked Rice Krispie Chicken

I have several good recipes that I fall back on for making baked chicken that has the look and taste of fried chicken. This recipe for Baked Rice Krispie Chicken is a new one that will be going into the keeper folder for great "faux fried" chicken recipes. This recipe is simple and quick to prepare with an easy clean up. Many thanks to my friend Tammy for sharing this recipe with me!

Baked Rice Krispie Chicken

Boneless, skinless chicken breast pieces
1/4 cup olive oil
Seasoned salt, to taste
Rice Krispie cereal (I used 1 cup for two breast portions)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan by lining with parchment paper. Rinse and dry chicken pieces. Place olive oil in a shallow bowl. Dip each chicken piece in the olive oil, then sprinkle with seasoned salt. Roll the chicken in a shallow bowl of Rice Krispie cereal until well coated on both sides. Place chicken pieces on prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until chicken is done.

To make this recipe you will need chicken breast portions, olive oil, seasoned salt, and Rice Krispie cereal.

Dip the chicken pieces in olive oil, sprinkle with seasoned salt, then roll in cereal. 

Bake chicken for about 30 minutes.

This chicken is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. I love this Baked Rice Krispie Chicken, and I think this is a recipe that will suit just about everyone's taste.
