Chicken Diablo (Chicken with a Honey Curry Sauce)
Also from Kit Graham at The Kit(tchen).
1 pound chicken breasts
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 sleeve of reduced fat Ritz crackers (or plain breadcrumbs)
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
1/3 cup honey
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Then crush the crackers into a small bowl. Mix in the dried basil. In another small bowl whisk the 2 eggs. Then coat the chicken breasts with the cracker crumb mixture. Then dunk in the eggs, and then back in the cracker crumbs.
Step 2: Heat 1 tablespoon butter and the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Then brown the chicken. Once the chicken is browned on both sides place it on a baking sheet and put into the oven. The chicken should take about 30-45 minutes to cook depending on how thick the chicken breasts are.
Step 3: While the chicken is baking, make the sauce. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan. Stir in the honey. Let the butter and honey mixture bubble and reduce for about 5 minutes. Then add the ginger and curry. These are pretty strong spices so add them slowly being careful not to add too much. I recommend starting with 1/4 teaspoon of each and then adding more to taste.
Step 4: Once the chicken is cooked, serve with the sauce on top.
