Crunchy Chicken with Honey Garlic Sauce



4  large boneless chicken breasts
Place the chicken breasts in a ziplock bag or saran wrap.  Using a rolling pin or mallet, pound meat until it is 1/2 inch in thickness.

Sift together:

2 cup flour
4 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper
4 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground nutmeg
2 tsp ground thyme
2 tsp ground sage
2 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper





To prepare egg wash, whisk together:

3 eggs

6 tbsp water













Rub chicken breasts with salt and pepper.  First dip the chicken into the flour mixture, then the egg mixture and then the flour mixture again.  
















Heat a half inch of olive oil in a frying pan.  Cook chicken  over medium heat, approximately 5 minutes on either side.  They will be golden brown upon completion. 












Drain on a wire rack or paper towels.









Honey Garlic Sauce

In a small saucepan add

2 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves minced garlic


Cook over medium heat to soften the garlic without browning.  Add:

1 cup honey
¼ cup soy sauce (low sodium soy sauce is best)
1 tsp ground black pepper


Simmer together for 10-15 minutes.  Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.


Enjoy!

  21. Made this for my church's small group tonight! It was a total hit, they kept calling it "PF Changs" Chicken. I used an almond milk was rather than egg wash since my oldest is allergic. A total hit. I has been added to the cycling repertoire here for sure.
