  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 1 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Peanut Apricot Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons apricot jam
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar


Slice each chicken breast lengthwise into 4 strips; set aside. In shallow bowl, whisk egg with cold water. In another shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs, coriander, Cajun seasoning and salt. Dip chicken strips into egg mixture, then into bread crumb mixture to coat all over.

Arrange chicken on greased rimmed baking sheet. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until golden and no longer pink inside, about 15 minutes.

Peanut Apricot Sauce: Meanwhile, in microwaveable bowl, combine apple juice, peanut butter, apricot jam, garlic and vinegar; cover and microwave at Medium-High (70%) for 2 minutes or until blended and warm, stirring once. Serve warm with chicken strips for dipping.
