Rice Kripsy Chicken Tenders with Blue Cheese Hot Sauce

This is all I have to show for the yummy chicken tenders I made last night...They got gobbled up so fast!
Instead of bread crumbs or corn flakes, I breaded chicken tenders with crushed up Rice Krispies Cereal and it was delicious!
8 Chicken breast tenders
2 Eggs, beaten
splash of water
4 cups slightly crushed Rice Krispies Cereal
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
pinch of garlic powder
1-2 tablespoons Frank's Hot Sauce
1/2 cup Blue Cheese Salad Dressing
Put cereal in one bowl with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Beat 2 eggs with a splash of water and a few squirts of Frank's hot sauce in another bowl. Double coat the chicken by putting it into the egg, then cereal, then back in the egg, and back into the cereal. This gives it a great crispy crust.
Saute in a non-stick pan, on medium heat, for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Transfer to baking sheet. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Serve with celery sticks and blue cheese hot sauce.

Dipping Sauce:
1/2 c. Blue Cheese dressing
1 tablespoon Frank's Hot Sauce (more or less to your desired heat level)
