We love a good fried chicken recipe as much as the next person. This Copycat Planet Hollywood Cap’n Crunch Chicken is so good, you’ll want to make it up at home.
Serve it up with Creole Mustard Sauce like they do at Planet Hollywood. Make your own, or buy the sauce and pretend like you did. We won’t tell. You can also mix things up and use a variety of sauces.

But, have some trust, the recipe turns out super delicious and you don’t realize it’s cereal in there. Seriously– this Captain Crunch cereal in a fried chicken coating.
