Copycat Captain Crunch Chicken

Friday, December 8, 2017
Many years ago maybe 15 years or so, my kids and I went to Planet Hollywood and ordered their Captain Crunch chicken, it was fabulous. We were really amazed how delicious it was as it didn't sound that interesting to me. Well the boys loved it, so I tried many times to make it and deep frying (as all the recipes out there stated) made the coating a sugary cereal sticky and candy like mess. I just love this captain crunch coated chicken!

A Crazy Delicious Stallone Fan Chicken Recipe



We had this the first time in Sylvester Stallone Planet Hollywood's restaurant, being huge fan it was a big hit for the family.


Well I finally made a method work for us and yes it's baked but everyone loved it.


Though not the original way the recipe stated and to fry it, baked came out delicious and not all stuck together.

Easier to Cook on Parchment Paper



This method worked great, it won't stick to your teeth or the pan.


It's tender, delicious and moist chicken with a little sugary bite to it.


I do recommend cooking on parchment paper and not foil so it won't stick.


This is a keeper for us and hope for you too.

Captain Crunch Works the Best!



The original recipes calls for 2 cups of crushed corn flakes instead of flour.


That coating is also very delicious but didn't seal in the juices like the flour did.


If I make corn flake chicken I do it the same exact way. Dip in egg whites, shake in seasoned flour, then in egg whites and into the corn flakes. Corn flakes however, will fry up nicely.


The condiment of choice in Planet Hollywood, was to serve these with honey mustard. It really accents the sweetness and the perfect side.

Big Fans



We are all huge fan of all the Slyvester Stallone movies, and we loved Planet Hollywood.


Several years later we are still watching and loyal to this Italian actor who made himself the man he is today.


His dream, his acting ability and writing, inspired us. Our family is grateful to his contributions and talent he has contributed.


Although no the original recipe, this is as close as it gets and we love it. Captain Crunch Chicken is made often here in our home with Sly in mind and thank him for introducing us to this delicious chicken recipe!

  1. I haven't had the Captain Crunch chicken before, but it sounds like a fun way to change it up. I much prefer baking it to frying it.

  2. Hmmmm, I'll be very curious to try this one. I make Cap'n Crunch French Toast on occasion, but I've never seen Cap'n Crunch Chicken. Sounds interesting. :)
