  • ½ teaspoon ground paprika

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs

  • 3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch pieces

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup lemon juice

  • 1 ½ teaspoons curry powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  2. Stir paprika, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl. Beat eggs in another bowl. Place bread crumbs in a third bowl.

  3. Sprinkle seasoning over chicken pieces. Dip pieces in beaten egg, then dredge in bread crumbs. Arrange chicken pieces in a single layer on the prepared pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, turning halfway through.

  5. Meanwhile, stir sugar, lemon juice, and curry powder together in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes.

  6. After chicken has cooked for 15 minutes, remove from the oven and drizzle lemon sauce over top. Return to the oven and bake for 5 more minutes.
