Thai Peanut and Popcorn Crusted Chicken
  • 2 cups popped popcorn
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 (1 3/4 lbs.) boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Here's How:
For the Thai Peanut Sauce: Mix 3 tablespoons peanut butter, 3 tablespoons honey, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons lime juice and 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce in a small bowl until smooth.

Preheat oven to 350º F. Process popcorn in a blender or food processor until ground. Pour ground popcorn into a shallow dish; stir in peanuts and set aside.

In another shallow dish, whisk egg, soy sauce, garlic and hot pepper sauce until blended; set aside.

Heat oil in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Dip chicken breasts first in egg mixture and then in popcorn mixture until well coated. Place in skillet and brown on both sides; about 3 minutes per side. Place skillet in oven 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serve with Thai Peanut sauce.
