  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, stir together paprika, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle seasoning over chicken pieces. Dip pieces in egg, then dredge in bread crumbs. Arrange chicken pieces in a single layer in an aluminum foil-lined 15x10-inch jelly roll pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, turning once.
  4. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stir together sugar, lemon juice, and curry powder, stirring until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes.
  5. Drizzle lemon sauce over chicken, return to oven, and bake 5 minutes more.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

What a unique flavor. Curry is something that I don't cook with very much, but really enjoyed in this recipe. The chicken came out very tender and juicy. We will surely be using this recipe a...

Not horrible, but tastes like I poured lemonade on top of chicken. It was sooo sweet, and I only put in half of the sugar that the recipe called for. The curry was a bit too much as well. I w...
