Crispy Peanut Chicken

Author: Canadian Living

Dip into your store of Asian ingredients — soy sauce, rice vinegar and peanuts — to give chicken breasts a taste of Thai. Then pair with handy rice or rice noodles and a pickup vegetable, such as bok choy or broccoli.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped unsalted peanut
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime rind
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Dipping Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons minced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar

Method

Place chicken between plastic wrap; using flat side of meat pounder, pound to even thickness.

In shallow dish, stir together flour, peanuts, coriander (if using), lime rind, salt and pepper. In separate shallow dish, lightly beat egg. Dip chicken into egg, letting excess drip off; dip into flour mixture, turning to coat and shaking off excess.

In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; fry chicken, turning once, until golden and no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes.

Dipping Sauce: Meanwhile, whisk together onions, soy sauce, vinegar and sugar. Serve with chicken.
