    Pollo al Jengibre con Salsa de Mango (Gingered Chicken Strips with Mango Sauce)

    Instead of frying these chicken strips, you can bake them: Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the coated chicken strips on lightly greased baking sheets and bake for 10 minutes. Turn over each strip and continue baking until golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes.


    Ingredients
    1 1/2
    pounds
    chicken strips - boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    3/4
    teaspoon
    salt
    1 1/2

    1
    teaspoon
    cinnamon
    3/4
    teaspoon
    ground cumin
    3
    eggs (beaten)
    1 1/2
    cups
    fine plain breadcrumbs
    oil (for frying)
    2 1/2
    cups
    limes or lemons (thinly sliced)
    2
    cups
    mango sauce - pureed mango
    1 1/2
    teaspoons
    grated lime or lemon zest
    2
    tablespoons
    fresh lime or lemon juice
    3
    slices
    fresh ginger (about 1/8 inch thick)
    1/2
    cup
    orange marmalade
    1/4
    cup
    sugar
    1 1/4
    tablespoons
    cornstarch
    Directions
    Make the chicken strips: Cut chicken into strips about 1 inch wide and 3 to 4 inches long.
    In a small bowl, combine salt, ground ginger, cinnamon, and cumin. Sprinkle and rub mixture onto chicken strips. Dip strips in beaten eggs, roll in breadcrumbs, and shake off.
    In a large skillet, heat oil over high heat. In batches, cook chicken until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side. Drain on paper towels. Arrange strips on serving platter and garnish with lime or lemon slices.
    Make the mango sauce. Blend mango puree and 1 cup cold water and process until smooth. Strain and discard fibrous residue.
    In a small bowl, stir 1/4 cup cold water into cornstarch. Pour strained mango mixture into a large saucepan and set over medium-high heat. Stir in lime or lemon zest, lime or lemon juice, ginger slices, marmalade, and sugar. Cook, uncover, 10 minutes, stir. Reduce heat to medium and stir in cornstarch mixture. Simmer until thick, 12 to 15 minutes. (Remove ginger slices, if desired.)
