Crispy chicken in a quick and easy dish that can be served over rice or noodles. From Family Circle magazine. I add extra firm tofu, cubed, in place of half the chicken, or all the chicken, which makes it vegetarian. It's delicious that way!


  1. In a large bowl, whisk crouton crumbs with cornstarch. Stir in soy sauce. Add chicken and toss until completely coated.
  2. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook, covered for 20 - 25 minutes or until nice and crispy and cooked through. Turn about 4 or 5 times to avoid burning.
  4. Drain on paper towels and serve hot with rice or noodles.

Love when quick and easy is this good! Lovely crispy chicken which was juicy, full of flavour and absolutely delicious. Served on a platter with pasta, made for great presentation.

Made with Extra Firm Tofu and pepper/sea salt croutons. Had trouble getting the mix to stick so dipped my tofu slices in egg first and all worked great! Obviously with the tofu you don't have to cook as long (even with that in mind I cooked a little to long - I'd recommend 2-3 minutes per side!) All and all very tasty! Thanks Julie!
