This is a great recipe! I've used it as a main dish and as an appetizer at parties. I use cornflakes for the coating and crushed red pepper flakes instead of ground red pepper--you can make it as spicy or as mild as you like. The cilantro dip cools and complements the chicken.The original recipe came from Better homes and Gardens.
- 6 inches wooden skewers
- 1⁄4 cup corn flake crumbs or 1⁄4 cup dry bread, crumbs
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground red pepper or 1⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast half
- 2 tablespoons margarine or 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 (8 ounce) carton sour cream
- 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, snipped
- 1. Soak skewers in water for 30 minutes.
- 2. While soaking skewers, combine crumbs, chili powder, black pepper, salt, and red pepper in a shallow dish.
- 3. Cut chicken into strips, thread onto skewers. Brush chicken with melted butter or margarine. Roll in crumb mixture.
- 4. Place chicken skewers in a single layer on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender and no longer pink, turning once.
- 5. While chicken is baking, stir together sour cream and cilantro in small bowl. Serve alongside chicken.
I scaled this recipe back to serve one, using one chicken breast, sliced into strips. I also used the crushed corn flakes and recommend this to others. For the cayenne pepper, I just sprinkled some into the mixture, as it was hard to put that into a 1/4 of 1/4 tsp. lol!! I loved it with the sour cream mixture, great quick lunch!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
