Ingredients

  1. Check 1 6-ounce bag spicy pita chips
  2. Check 1cup grated Parmesan
  3. Check 1/2cup flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped (optional)
  4. Check 1 egg
  5. Check 1 1/2pounds chicken cutlets, cut into 3-inch pieces
  6. Check 1cup sour cream
  7. Check 4 scallions, trimmed and chopped

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400° F.
  2. Place the pita chips and Parmesan in a food processor. Pulse until coarsely ground. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the parsley, if using. 
  3. In a medium bowl, beat the egg with 1 teaspoon water. Dip the chicken in the egg, letting any excess drip off, then in the pita-chip mixture, pressing gently to help it adhere.
  4. Place the chicken pieces on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream and scallions and serve with the chicken for dipping.
