Sticky Chinese Chicken

I have to say that this is probably the best dinner Ive cooked ever. I had a VERY hard time sticking to one serving of this, despite how low in calories & sizeable one serving is. Im usually very hesistant to make any Asian cuisine because my boyfriend is half Korean. His mother is 100% Korean &, from what Ive told, can whip up some Asian food.

Yields 6 servings.
276 calories per serving.
Recipe from Family Circle via Recipe dot com.

1 c garlic & onion flavored croutons, finely crushed
1/4 c corn starch
2 tbsp light soy sauce
2 lbs chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, & cut into 1 in pieces
1/4 c canola oil

In a large bowl whisk crouton crumbs & cornstarch.
Stir in soy sauce.
Add chicken & toss until completely coated.
Cover & refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
Add chicken & cook, covered, for 20 - 25 minutes until nice & crispy.
Turn about 4 or 5 times during cooking to avoid burning.
Drain on paper towels.

I served this along side of cauliflower. So freakin' good.
