- 2 teaspoon(s) paprika, divided
- 1 teaspoononion powder, divided
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder, divided
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed
- 2 cups whole-wheat breadcrumbs or white Japanese-style panko breadcrumbs
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- Freshly ground pepper to taste
- 1/2 Vidalia or other sweet onion, cut into 4 pieces
- 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- To make chicken: Combine 1 teaspoon paprika, and 1/2 teaspoon each onion powder and garlic powder in a large bowl. Add milk and whisk.
- Cut chicken lengthwise into about 1-inch-wide strips. Add to the marinade and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
- Combine breadcrumbs, the remaining 1 teaspoon paprika, and 1/2 teaspoon each onion powder and garlic powder in a large shallow dish (a 9- by 13-inch baking dish works well). Add 2 tablespoons oil and toss well to coat. Whisk egg whites and mustard in a second large shallow dish. Season both mixtures with pepper.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with sprayed foil, then set a large wire rack on it. Coat the rack with cooking spray.
- Remove the chicken from the marinade, shaking off any excess, and thread onto six 12-inch bamboo skewers, dividing evenly. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture, coating both sides. Place in the breadcrumb mixture one at a time, sprinkle with crumbs to cover, and press so the coating adheres to both sides. Gently shake off any excess crumbs and place the skewers on the prepared rack.
- Bake the chicken, turning halfway through, until golden brown and the juices run clear, about 25 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare the dipping sauce: Place onion in a food processor fitted with a metal blade and process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. Add vinegar, honey, mustard and pepper; process until smooth. With the motor running, add oil through the feed tube in a slow, steady stream until the mixture is thick and well combined. Taste and adjust seasoning with more honey and/or pepper, if desired.
- Serve the chicken with the dipping sauce.
