Chicken with Cucumber Sauce

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.

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

  • 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.
  • In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°.
  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine the sauce ingredients; cook over low heat until heated through. Serve with chicken.
Editor's Note: Chicken may also be served as a sandwich on buns topped with warm or chilled cucumber sauce.
