Crunchy Cheerios Chicken Biscuits

I guess I can't ever get bored of making due with what food I have on hand in the house. Can you tell by this recipe? Traditionally, people have used corn flakes or even Capn' Crunch as chicken coating. Well, we had none of those, so I used Honey Nut Cheerios. It was totally tasty! I whipped out my trusty hammer and Ziploc bag, then smashed those little bits of honey nut goodness into smithereens!!! If they ever make a reality show where you use tools instead of kitchen appliances, I could totally be the star. Plus, since I didn't use a food processor, I have less clean up. Less clean up and a quick meal. I like it!

Crunchy Cheerios Chicken Biscuits
1 package of Bisquick Complete Biscuits(ready in 15 minutes- I used the honey flavor)
2 6-8 oz thin chicken cutlets
1/4 cup of flour
1/2 cup of smashed Honey Nut Cheerios
1/4 TSP ground mustard(optional)
2 TBSP of olive oil

Prepare biscuits according to directions.Toss the chicken in flour to coat. Place Cheerios in a sealed Ziploc and crush with a hammer or meat tenderizer(on its side) or pulse Cheerios in a food processor until finely ground. Add ground mustard to mix, then chicken cutlets. Shake,shake, shake until fully coated. Heat olive oil in medium pan. Add chicken and cook for about 10-12 minutes, turning every 2-3 minutes. Cut into small tenders so they fit on the biscuits and serve.
