Coconut peanut chicken

Makes: 30 servings
Prep: 20 minutes
Deep-fry: 4 to 6 minutes per batch

Crazy about nuts? Substitute macadamias or pecans for the peanuts; add 1/4 teaspoon salt to the flour. And why not try turkey instead of the chicken?

Per serving: 131 calories, 5 g protein, 10 g fat, 7 g carbohydrate, 63 mg sodium, 23 mg cholesterol.

3/4 cup cocktail peanuts
2 cups sweetened flake coconut
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
Vegetable oil for frying

Dipping sauce
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons orange marmalade
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard

1. Place peanuts in a food processor. Whirl until finely choppped. Combine peanuts with coconut in a medium-size bowl. Place flour in a small bowl. Lightly beat eggs in another small bowl.

2. Dip chicken pieces in flour to coat lightly, shaking off excess, then in eggs and then in peanut-coconut mixture.

3. Pour oil into an electric skillet or a regular large skillet to a depth of 1/2 inch. Set electric skillet at 350 or heat oil in a regular skillet over medium heat until it registers 350 on a deep-fat thermometer.

4. With a slotted spoon, carefully slip chicken into hot oil, 6 pieces at a time. Fry 4 to 6 minutes or until cooked through, turning once; adjust heat as needed to prevent peanut coating from overbrowning. Transfer chicken to paper toweling to drain. Keep hot in a warm oven. Repeat with remaining chicken.

5. Prepare dipping sauce. Combine honey, marmalade, soysauce and mustard in a small bowl.

6. Place chicken on a serving plate. Serve with sauce.

2 medium tomatoes, cored and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 2 cups)
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

1. Cook fusilli in a large pot of lightly salted boiling water until al dente, firm but tender. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup pasta cooking water.

2. Meanwhile, cut chicken into 2 x 1/2 x 1/2-inch strips. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; sauté 5 minutes or until it begins to brown. Add onion; cook 3 minutes. Add garlic and cumin. Reduce heat to medium; cook 1 minute.
