Chicken Skewers with Dipping Sauce

This is an imitation, low-fat version of a deep-fried Chinese chicken dish. I love the fact that the cutlets are threaded on skewers and then baked. Kids love them, especially with the Bissli crunch. (My grandson kept asking for just one more!) Adults and kids enjoy the sweet and tangy dipping sauce. And guess what — it’s sugar-free too!

Ingredients (20)

Chicken

Marinade

Start Cooking

Marinate

  1. Whisk together all the marinade ingredients in a large bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning if desired.

  2. Place cutlets in a large bowl with half the marinade and refrigerate for an hour or more.

  3. Meanwhile, soak nine to 10 skewers in a nine- by 13-inch (20- by 30-centimeter) pan filled with water for a few minutes (so they don’t burn in the oven).

Note:

I used xylitol, a natural sugar substitute, to keep this as healthful as possible. You can use white or brown sugar, if desired.

Assemble and Bake

  1. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).

  2. Remove cutlets from marinade and cut nine to 10 cutlets in half lengthwise so you have thin strips. Dip each strip into bread crumbs mixed with Bissli.

  3. Thread the strips on a skewer in a back-and-forth motion, folding the cutlet as you go. You should have two strips, spaced apart, on each skewer. Place the skewers on a large pan lined with parchment paper and sprayed with cooking spray.

  4. Leave the remaining cutlets whole. Combine more bread crumbs with Montreal steak seasoning to taste. Dip the cutlets into this mixture and place on a separate pan. You should have five to six cutlets.

  5. Spray all the skewers and cutlets with cooking spray before sliding into the oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and crispy.

For the Sauce

  1. Meanwhile, heat the reserved half of the marinade in a small pot. Bring to a boil.

  2. Add cornstarch dissolved in water. Cook for 30 seconds, or until thickened.

  3. Serve cutlets and skewers with dipping sauce. Garnish with sliced scallions and sesame seeds, if desired.
