Nutty Chicken Strips

I enjoy cooking for my parents and two brothers. I usually prepare things that are a little out of the ordinary. These strips, seasoned with curry, are great for a family game night. —Betsy Baertlein, Mazeppa, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • CHICKEN:
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch-wide strips
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

Directions

  • Mix yogurt, cilantro and honey. Refrigerate, covered, until serving.
  • In a shallow bowl, whisk together egg and milk. In another bowl, toss bread crumbs with almonds, cilantro and curry powder. Toss chicken strips with flour to coat lightly; shake off excess. Dip both sides in egg mixture, then in crumb mixture.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. In batches, cook chicken until golden brown, 5-6 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sauce.
Editor's Note
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
