Grape Nuts oh so crunchy chicken

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.
