The folks over at Weetabix have baffled people up and down the country with their crispy chicken recipe.
The cereal giant is not generally known for its savoury offerings, but its culinary boffins have been hard at work and shared their recipe for 'chicken Weetabix' - and it has divided opinion, to say the least.
Taking to Twitter, the company posted its guide to making the perfect date dish for bonfire night.
It read: "#BonfireNight may look a little different this year, but it's a good excuse for a cosy date night with our Chicken Weetabix recipe #HaveYouHadYourWeetabix."

So what does this bizarre creation consist of?
Well, you need two tablespoons of mayonnaise, two skinless chicken breast fillets, 25g of fresh breadcrumbs, 25g of lightly crushed Weetabix, and a side serving of salad - naturally.
Heat the oven to 220C, put the mayonnaise in a bowl and stir well for the coating, mix the crumbs and Weetabix with some seasoning, tip into a plate and use the crumbs to coat the chicken, put the chicken on a baking tray and cook until tender and juicy, and then dive in.
But what did people think? Well, it received a mixed response.
Commenting on the post, one user said: "Weetabix from a bowl is very nice. But to put it on chicken is demented."
Another asked: "Do the words 'lead balloon' mean anything to you @weetabix?"
The fact they call it Chicken Weetabix makes me think it's chicken flavoured Weetabix or something, I would have gone with Weetabix Chicken. But either way, .

While a third simply added: "No."
But not everyone was so quick to dismiss the less conventional meal.
"I'm not a fan of breakfast Weetabix, but if it was crushed and fried around chicken, it might be OK. I'd give it a go," put one.
A second wrote: "Ooooooo, interesting I've made cocoa nib chicken with breadcrumbs, I feel this needs a tr."
