In continuation with “Baseball Week: An Ode to Stadium Favorites” I took possibly the most classic baseball stadium snack, the Cracker Jack, and coated it on chicken bites for a sweet, salty and delicious dish!
Everyone loves crispy popcorn chicken, but this chicken is surrounded by crunchy Cracker Jacks giving it an extra burst of flavor!
- 1 lb chicken breasts
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 10 oz cracker jacks (10 small boxes)
- 3 cups flour
Begin by dicing the chicken breasts into small cubes.
Then whisk the milk and eggs together in a shallow bowl.
Next, add the Cracker Jacks to a food processor.
Blend into a fine crumb texture.
Dip the chicken into the egg and milk mixture, then into the flour, back into the egg mixture, then coat with the Cracker Jack crumbs.
It’s ok if you make a big mess as I so graciously have shown above 😉
Once the chicken is coated place the pieces on a wire rack on a baking stone, that way the chicken cooks evenly!
Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until crisp.
Try this totally delicious dinner treat this week!
