Prep Time

15 Minutes

Total Time

50 Minutes

Makes

12 servings

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup Progresso® panko crispy bread crumbs
1/2 cup sweet-and-sour sauce
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel

  1. Cut each chicken breast across grain into 8 (1/2-inch-thick) slices. In medium bowl, mix soy sauce, honey, ginger and garlic powder. Add chicken; stir gently until coated. Let stand 20 minutes to marinate.
  2. Heat oven to 400°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil; spray foil with cooking spray. Place bread crumbs in shallow dish. Drain off any remaining soy sauce mixture from chicken. Toss chicken pieces in bread crumbs to coat; arrange in single layer in pan.
  3. Bake 5 minutes. Turn chicken; bake 5 to 7 minutes longer or until golden brown and crisp.
  4. In small bowl, stir together sweet-and-sour sauce and lemon peel. Serve chicken with sauce for dipping.
Makes 12 servings (2 chicken strips and 2 teaspoons sauce each)
