Delicious Sweet and Sour Crispy Chicken and other great recipes from Sunsweet®
12 Sunsweet® Pitted Prunes 1/2 cup hot water non-stick cooking spray 2 shallots or 1/2 red onion, minced 1 Tbsp brown sugar 1 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce 2 cups whole wheat flour 2 Tbsp ground flax 2 egg whites 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast, sliced into 4 inch long fingers 1/4 tsp salt 2 Tbsp olive oil
Instructions

Sweet and Sour Sauce
Place prunes in the hot water and soak for 30 minutes until the prunes are soft. Heat a small saucepan and coat the bottom with cooking spray. Add the shallots or onions and cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring often until soft. Add the soy sauce, brown sugar and prunes along with the soaking water. Cook 2 to 3 minutes until the liquid reduces by one third. Transfer to a blender and blend until smooth.

Chicken
Place the flour and flax on a sheet of wax paper. Mix them together with your fingertips. Place the eggs in a shallow bowl and whisk. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and dip into the egg. Press into the flour mixture and transfer to a plate. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Heat two large skillets over high heat. Coat with cooking spray and add the chicken. Reduce the heat to medium and cook 2 to 3 minutes until the chicken begins to brown. Coat the tops of the chicken with a thin layer of cooking spray. Turn the chicken and slide the skillet into the oven. Bake 5 to 6 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink and translucent in the center. Serve immediately with the sweet and sour sauce.
