How to make rice krispy chicken:

The greatest things is how easy this is to make.

One egg beaten in and bowl. Crushed rice krispys in another bowl. I use my small food processor to crush mine up, you don’t want it to be completely smooth, leave some whole, for add crunch.

Add which ever spices you want to the coating. We used chili, paprika, garlic power and onion powder. Add to suit your and you family’s taste.

Drag your chicken breast in the egg wash. Whole chicken breast, or chicken pieces for chicken nuggets, or stripes for chicken tenders work great. In our experience kids seem to like stripes better. They love just picking up their chicken instead of using a fork.

Then fully coat your chicken.

I use a cooling rack over a cookie sheet for baking my chicken like this. This means I don’t have to worry about flipping it half way through, one side won’t be soggy and the other crispy.

Bake in a preheated oven at 425 for 25-30 minutes. The smaller your pieces of chicken the less time it will take to cook. 

We sprinkled a little Parmesan cheese over ours. But the toppings could add are endless!
