Chicken with Cucumber Sauce Recipe

I've served this chicken to nearly all our friends and relatives, and it's been met with many "Mmmms!" I sometimes prepare extra sauce to serve over steamed fresh carrots.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon seafood seasoning, optional
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • CUCUMBER SAUCE:
  • 1 bottle (8 ounces) ranch salad dressing
  • 1 cup chopped peeled cucumber
  • 1 tablespoon sliced green onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill weed

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the cornmeal, mustard, nutmeg, cayenne pepper and seafood seasoning if desired. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat.
  • 2. In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 170°.
