“I enjoy cooking for my parents and two brothers,” relates Betsy Baertlein, 17, of Mazeppa, Minnesota. “I usually prepare things that are a little out of the ordinary. These strips, seasoned with curry, are great for a family game night.”

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (8 ounces) 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

  1. Mix yogurt, cilantro and honey. Refrigerate, covered, until serving.
  2. 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.
  3. 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. Yield: 6 servings.
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.

"My kids are pretty picky eaters. So I decided to make something that was somewhat normal, chicken fingers, for dinner. They scarfed it down and loved every bite. A definite do again. Served with some veggies and rice pilaf for a perfect meal."

"Excellent flavor! I made this for the Xmas party and everyone loved it! Even the person who doesn't like cilantro. The dip was the best! I did add about 1 tsp more of honey since you can taste that plain yogurt just a bit too much - but that is just my tastebud! The whole thing was a hit!"
