Sweetie Wheatie Chicken
According to my mother, the story of this meal was nothing more than a fluke. Apparently one night while making dinner she reached for bread crumbs but didn't have any so she improvised and grabbed Wheaties cereal. A few years later she was making it for me and was out of condensed milk, so improvisation lead to the honey.
I love this so much and she rolls her eyes every year when I ask for it for my birthday. I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
Full time: 45-60 minutes
You will need:
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into larger pieces
3 cups Wheaties cereal
1 1/2 cup honey
Let us begin:
Preheat oven to 350
Cover a baking tray with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray
Pour cereal into a bowl
Gently crush down to break pieces slightly but not pulverize them
In a large zip-bag or flat bottom bowl, pour honey
Add in chicken and coat heavily
Using tongs, remove chicken from honey and put into cereal
Roll chicken around to coat and move to the cooking tray
Once all chicken is coated, bake in oven for 35-50 minutes or until chicken had an internal temp of 180
Allow to stand for approx 2 minutes
Carefully remove from tray to a plate and serve!
