Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich

This is another Hungry Girl recipe, and let me tell you, Biz and I were shocked at how good it was.  We will definitely be making this again.  I didn't have high hopes going into this, knowing I was going to eat chicken that had been coated with ground up Fiber One cereal (which is not a cereal I'd eat for breakfast).  Honestly, though, it was great.  It tasted like it had been fried, and it reminded us both of the spicy chicken sandwich from Wendy's. 

It doesn't hurt that if you follow the recipe, the sandwich has 313 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, 12 grams of fiber, and 31 grams of protein!  I'm not a calorie counter, but I do like patting myself on the back if I eat something that isn't terrible for me.  I didn't have egg substitute, so I just used one beaten egg.  The recipe below is just for one sandwich, so we doubled it easily.

You should try this sandwich; you will like it!  You can even get a coupon for Fiber One here.

Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich

3 oz  raw boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 small hamburger bun
1/2 cup Fiber One cereal (original)
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp fat free mayonnaise
2 slices tomato
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, divided

Preheat oven to 375.  Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency.  Add half of the cayenne pepper (1/8 tsp) to the crumbs and mix well.  Place crumbs in one small dish and egg in another.

Sprinkle salt and black pepper evenly on both sides of the chicken.  Then coat chicken on both sides--first with egg and then with seasoned crumbs.

Place chicken on a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray.  Top chicken with a light mist of nonstick spray and then place in oven.  Cook for 10 minutes, and then flip the chicken over and add another light mist of cooking spray.  Cook for an additional 10-12 minutes, until chicken is fully cooked and the coating looks crispy. 

While the chicken is cooking, combine mayo and the remaining cayenne pepper in a small bowl.  Spread half of the mayo mixture on each half of the bun.  Layer chicken and tomato slices between the two buns and serve!


  1. I've always wondered if the Fiber One coating would be good. I'll have to try it. We love to oven fry chicken!

  2. I need this for dinner stat, have a nie weekend.

  3. Yum! I made this last night! VERY juicy! I used the extra egg/ Fiber 1 to toss some faux-onion rings in with the chicken!

    Thanks, Allie!
