  • 2 lbs thin sliced chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)

  • Pepper and paprika, to taste

  • 1½ cups Szechuan-style duck sauce

  • 1 can (19 oz.) pineapple chunks, drained (reserve liquid)

  • 2 eggs

  • salt

  • Matzo meal

  • Oil


Note: this recipe can be prepared by lightly frying the chicken before baking, or just baking directly

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  2. In one bowl, mix the matzo meal with salt. In a second bowl, beat the egg with a little bit of water

  3. Dip the chicken cutlets in the egg mixture, and then the matzo meal mixture.

  4. Heat up 1/4 inch oil in a large skillet, and brown the chicken cutlets on each side (about 2-3 min each side), once browned, transfer to an oven safe casserole

  5. Pour duck sauce and pineapple chunks over chicken, along with half of the reserved liquid from the pineapple chunks.

  6. Bake covered at 400°F for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F and bake 1 hour longer, basting occasionally.
