Rice Krispies Chicken Strips – Gluten Free

Over the Christmas holidays we received a holiday gift box from Kellogg’s. As a way to promote some new products coming to Canada, Kellogg’s gave out samples by sending a big box in the mail with one of each of their new products. I was quick to sign up for it and we received the holiday gift box a few weeks ago. The kids were so excited on a couple different levels. For one, they were simply thrilled getting a big package in the mail. But more than that, it was extra special that they got to sample these brand new cereals and cereal bars which were not even in stores yet! They loved them all. THANKS KELLOGG’S!!

One of the new cereals was a new kind of Rice Krispies. Kellogg’s has been coming out with a few new Rice Krispies flavours lately. Cocoa is the kids favourite and I love the vanilla flavour. The holiday gift box included their newest kind coming to Canada: Rice Krispies Brown Rice.

A nice thing about this cereal is that it is gluten free. One might think that the previous Rice Krispies was already gluten free, but one ingredient was barely malt, which contains gluten.

I thought it would be great to make something with these gluten free Rice Krispies so I made Rice Krispies Chicken Strips.Most chicken strips or chicken nuggets have bread crumbs and therefore gluten. These are a great option for people on a gluten free diet. On top of that, they taste awesome!! I served it with this sweet heat Thai chili sauce.
