    Chili Powder Chicken with Cilantro Cream


    6-inch wooden skewers
    1/4 cup cornflake crumbs or fine dry bread crumbs
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
    1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
    2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
    1 8-ounce carton dairy sour cream
    3 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro

    1. Soak skewers in water for 30 minutes. Combine crumbs, chili powder, black pepper, salt, and red pepper in a shallow dish.
    2. Cut chicken into strips; thread onto skewers. Brush chicken strips with melted margarine or butter. Roll in crumb mixture.
    3. Place chicken skewers in a single layer on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender and no longer pink, turning skewers once.
    4. Meanwhile, stir together sour cream and cilantro in a small mixing bowl. Serve with chicken. Makes 12 servings.

    **For the cilantro sauce, I also added some fresh lemon juice, diced red peppers, garlic powder, chopped jalapenos, and a lil bit of salt (I used Morton hot salt) and pepper to taste.
