  RECIPE TITLE "Chicken Fingers with Garlic Butter" recipe from Cooking with the 60 Minute Gourmet

yields 4 servingstime --- difficultyeasy

Over the years, I have probably devised more chicken breast recipes than anything else. And the demand never ends. Chicken breast is one of the most appealing foods in the supermarket because it is ready to cook, versatile, low in fat and high in protein. But if one falls into a rut by simply broiling or baking chicken breasts, dinner can be mighty boring.
This recipe for chicken fingers with garlic butter is simple yet tasty. And you can vary the seasonings in countless ways.

  RECIPE INGREDIENTS

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano or 2 teaspoons dried
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 ripe plum tomatoes, skinned, seeded, and diced small
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
4 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander or basil
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Cooking with the 60 Minute Gourmet
Cooking with the 60 Minute Gourmet Features newly discovered recipes from the late Pierre Franey's classic New York Times column. This cookbook combines all that was great about Pierre Franey's cooking: fresh, flavorful ingredients, ease of preparation, and the commandment: Don't spend all evening in the kitchen.

  RECIPE METHOD

1. Using a sharp knife, cut the breast halves in half crosswise, then lengthwise into strips 1/2 inch wide.(Continued on next page)

2. Thoroughly blend salt, pepper, oregano, and flour in a flat dish. Add the chicken pieces in one layer. Stir to season, keeping each strip separate.

3. Heat the butter and oil over high heat in a skillet large enough to hold the chicken pieces in one layer. Add the chicken, cook and stir until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and garlic and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes more. Add the coriander and lime juice and continuecooking. Blend well and serve immediately.

tip: To get the most juice out of a lime or lemon, roll it on a countertop while pressing down. Another method is to pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds, just to warm it.
