Captain Rodney's Sweet Tea Oven Fried Chicken Fingers

  • 6 cups cornflake cereal
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper 
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 ½ lb. chicken tenders
  • 2 Cups of Captain Rodney’s Sweet Tea Glaze

Preheat oven to 400°

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick vegetable oil. Place 6 cups cornflake cereal in a food processor and pulse to the consistency of breadcrumbs, 60-90 seconds. Transfer crumbs to a shallow bowl; season with 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper and 1/2 tsp. kosher salt.

Add 1 1/2 lb. chicken tenders to 2 Cups Captain Rodney’s Sweet Tea Glaze in a large bowl and toss to coat. Dip each piece of chicken in cornflake crumbs, pressing chicken into the crumbs to ensure the coating sticks well.

Captain Rodney's Barbeque Bloody Mary

This great riff on a classic bloody mary was inspired by the folks at Corsair Artisan Distillery and their incredible Wildfire Whiskey made with hickory smoked barley. They offer a version of this classic in their tasting room from time to time featuring some of our products and their own house made bitters and infusions which is incredible. The recipe here is an approximate version that is easy to make at home and still tastes great. 

  • 2 oz. Corsair Wildfire Whiskey
  • 1 oz. Captain Rodney's Coffee Barbeque Sauce
  • 4 oz. Bloody Mary Mix (We use Debutante Farmer brand)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • Splash of lemon juice
  • Splash of Captain Rodney's Corazon del Fuego Hot Sauce (optional)

Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake about 10 seconds and pour into a tall glass rimmed with Captain Rodney's Whiskey Barbeque Rub. Garnish with a lemon slice and sprig of rosemary.

Traditionally, a Bloody Mary is made with vodka, but Corsair's hickory smoked whiskey is a natural in this barbeque inspired cocktail that will leave your guests asking for more.



Captain Rodney's Steak & Burger Dressing

  • 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon of Captain Rodney's Steak & More All-Purpose Rub

Combine all ingredients and mix well.

Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour to let the flavors blend or serve immediately. We don’t judge.

A dollop of this dressing on top of your burger patty or steak will bring a smooth creamy flavor with a kick. Also great as a dip.
