Ingredients

  • ½ cups Schnucks all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp and ⅛ tsp ground cayenne pepper, divided
  • 2 Schnucks large eggs
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 8 oz Schnucks cashew halves and pieces
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2½ lb Schnucks Natural boneless, skinless chicken breast tenderloins, each cut lengthwise in half
  • 36 bamboo skewers
  • 12 oz sweet orange marmalade
  • 1 cup Schnucks refrigerated orange juice
  • 1 tbsp refrigerated Gourmet Garden™ ginger spice blend or grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2½ tsp cornstarch
  • Instructions

    1. Adjust oven racks to upper and lower positions. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray 2 rimmed baking pans with nonstick cooking spray. In pie plate or wide, shallow dish, combine flour, salt and ¼ teaspoon cayenne. In second pie plate or wide, shallow dish, with fork or whisk, beat eggs with water.
    2. Place cashews in large zip-tight plastic bag; seal bag, pressing out excess air. With rolling pin or smooth side of meat mallet, crush cashews. In third pie plate, combine panko and cashews.
    3. Thread chicken onto skewers. Dip chicken in flour mixture to coat both sides, shaking off excess. Add chicken to egg mixture, allowing excess to drip off. Place chicken in cashew mixture, pressing lightly so mixture adheres to both sides. Place in prepared baking pans. Spray tenderloins with nonstick cooking spray.
    4. Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned and internal temperature reaches 165°F, rotating pans between upper and lower racks halfway through baking.
    5. Meanwhile, in blender, purée marmalade, orange juice, ginger, lemon juice, cornstarch and remaining ⅛ teaspoon cayenne until smooth. Transfer to small saucepan; heat to boiling over medium heat. Boil 1 minute. Makes about 2⅓ cups. Serve chicken skewers hot with sauce for dipping.
