Years ago when I first visited Planet Hollywood, my friends kept telling me that the Captain Crunch chicken was a must try dish.  I thought is sounded, well, gross.  However, they all begged me to give it a try.  The girls were probably 6 and 8 years old at the time, so why not, I ordered a plate for the girls.  And maybe I would try a bite.  When the dish arrived and I tested it out, I immediately ordered another plate.

Then, I stopped making it even though they kept asking for it.  I think in the last ten years I have only made them twice.  So today, for their 22nd birthday I made it again.  This time, I felt it was time to share it will all of you too!
