Recipe: Fiery Fried Chicken

Here’s a recipe from the “Fake It, Don’t Make It” feature in Real Simple magazine.

Fiery Fried Chicken

Yield: 4 servings

1 tablespoon chili-garlic sauce (found in the international aisle of most supermarkets)

3 tablespoons pineapple juice

4 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts

3/4 cup bread crumbs

Kosher salt

3 tablespoons canola oil

Heat oven to 450° F.

In a large bowl, combine the chili-garlic sauce and pineapple juice. Add the chicken and toss to coat.

In a separate bowl, combine the bread crumbs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the oil. Working with 1 piece at a time, coat the chicken in the bread crumb mixture and transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining breasts. Bake until cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.
