My husband turned up his nose when he saw me making this the first time, but he absolutely flipped when he tasted it. I like to serve it with an apple rice pilaf salad.—Amanda Donnelly, Fairborn, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 1 jar (10 ounces) lemon curd
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1-1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • Oil for frying

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the lemon curd, broth, soy sauce and ginger. Cook and stir until combined and heated through; keep warm.
  2. In a shallow bowl, combine buttermilk and lemon zest. In another bowl, combine flour and cornstarch. Dip chicken in buttermilk mixture, then coat with flour mixture.
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil to 375°. Fry chicken, a few strips at a time, for 2-3 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Drain on paper towels. Serve with lemon sauce.
