This will keep for quite a while, just keep it in a air tight jar. If you have not used this breading for a while….shake it up to make sure all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. This is for those of you who love seriously crunchy chicken. If you prefer a not so crisp/crunchy covering, process the cereal till it is almost like the consistency of flour. I served this with my “ bread and butter green beans” recipe on here, and cheddar potatoes.
