Lemon Chicken Tenders

These are tasty. The sweet sauce means you don't need any dipping sauce (but a spicy honey-mustard would likely be good anyway).

1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 large skinned and boned chicken breast halves, cut into 2-inch strips
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder

Combine first 3 ingredients; sprinkle on chicken strips.

Dip chicken pieces in egg, and dredge in breadcrumbs. Arrange chicken in a single layer in an aluminum foil-lined 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan.

Bake at 400° for 15 minutes, turning chicken once.

Cook sugar, lemon juice, and curry powder in a small saucepan for 5 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring till sugar dissolves. Drizzle over chicken; bake 5 more minutes.
