In South Carolina, where I was born, I used to work in Planet Hollywood. On one of my breaks, I found Captain Crunch chicken fingers. It was one of the best appetisers that I have ever tried. I couldn’t stop eating it! Every day, I ordered the crispy, juicy chicken strips with creole honey mustard dip. Captain Crunch was a popular breakfast cereal that gave them a crispy coating. It made them deliciously crispy with a hint sweetness.

They were delicious when I returned to Ireland. But, there was one problem: we don’t have Captain Crunch. After several attempts with various crunched cereals and other additions, I finally got as close as I can.

This is the story behind one of our most loved dishes. Here’s the recipe. They are so delicious that I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

They don’t have to be broken down in their entirety. Some Rice Krispies will not be broken up, while others can be ground to a fine powder. You can have both, or a mixture of both. This won’t take too long, but you will need to keep at it until you achieve consistency.

Season the Rice Krispies with salt and pepper. Mix the Rice Krispies with the grated Parmesan.

This is the first step. Now it’s time for Captain Crunch to begin coating.

Use your left hand to coat the chicken with the mayonnaise one at a time. Take it out. Transfer the chicken to your right hand. To give the chicken a nice crunch, press it down.

Tip: Left Hand-Mayo // Right Hand-Rice Krispie Mix Continue this until all of the pieces of chicken are coated. This will prevent the Rice Krispies from coating your hands.

Once the mixture is coated, transfer it to a casserole dish. After 10 minutes, turn the oven down to 180°C. Cooking time total 20 minutes. Once the chicken is done, remove it from the oven. Let the chicken cool down before you transfer it to a plate.

These Captain Crunch Chicken Fingers are still my favorite name. They are highly recommended by both me and my boys.

A bit of adventure this summer is welcome after a year of restrictions on travel and monotony of staying inside. Captain Crunch is the only person who understands how important adventure can be. Captain Crunch offers a Crunchatized 2-night August stay aboard his houseboat, The Captain Crunch. This unique summer stay is for fans who want to see the Cap’n’s life when he’s not out on the open seas.

“We know that people are looking for fun experiences this year, especially after a decade and a half worth of deferred plans,” Kristin Kroepfl (Vice President and CMO at Quaker Foods North America), said. “Now that people have started to get back to their routines, we want Crunch fans to come out in a fun and exciting way to bring adventure to the breakfast table. It’s a great way to accomplish that, than by inviting them to stay in the Captain Crunch homeaway from home and “Be the Cap’n” for a few nights.

A stay at The Captain Crunch, docked in Boston is more than just a relaxing oasis on the water. It’s also an opportunity to get to know more about the man who created the famous Crunch. Guests will have a chance to see the Cap’n’s personal style – nautical and beach vibes with a Crunch flair – as well as some of his most treasured keepsakes. They also have access to a large supply of Cap’n Crunch. Each room contains little treasures about Captain Crunch, from his adventures on the beloved S.S. Guppy to high school rowing champion status.
