  • 2 Chicken breasts cut into small pieces
  • 1 Egg
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 Cup flour
  • ½ Cup breadcrumbs
  • 1-2 garlic cloves crushed
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ginger powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons broth
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cumin

  • In a small bowl combine the peanut butter with the soy sauce, broth, ginger, cumin, crushed garlic cloves and turmeric. Set aside. 
  • In a small bowl beat the egg with the lemon juice and set aside for breading.
  • In a third bowl combine the flour with the breadcrumbs, garlic powder, ginger and salt and pepper. 
  • Dip the chicken into the egg and then dip in the flour mixture. Toss to coat evenly with flour.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken to the hot pan and cook for 5 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown.
