3 cups (500 mL) Cheerios® cereal, finely crushed
3/4 teaspoon (3 mL) salt

1/4 cup (50 mL) milk
2 tablespoons (25 mL) honey
1 tablespoon (15 mL) mustard
1 lb. (500 g) boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces (use drumsticks but remove skin)
2 tablespoons (25 mL) butter or margarine melted (optional)

Heat oven to 400° (200° C). Spray 13x9x2 inches (3.5 L) pan with cooking spray. Stir together cereal, salt and pepper; set aside. Stir together milk, honey and mustard in medium bowl until blended. Dip chicken into milk mixture, shake off excess; coat with cereal mixture. Place chicken in pan; drizzle with butter, if desired.

can you deep fry them instead of baking them?

I have never tried deep frying them - they really do come out crunchy when baked - if you do try deep frying let us know how they turn out

I make these as well with Corn Flakes. Only thing I do different before putting them in the oven is that I put some olive oi(few table spoons)l and garlic in a frying pan. I fry them for just a couple minutes in a very minute amount of the oil then put them in the oven to finish cooking. I find they come out a lot crispier this way.
