4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

4 large eggs

2 tablespoons Hawaij Spice Blend (see below)

2 cups matzo meal

2 teaspoons plus a pinch of kosher salt

1/4 cup canola oil


Slice each chicken breast in half horizontally and pound (with a mallet or the back of a heavy pan) to an even 1/4-inch thickness.

In a shallow baking dish, beat the eggs with the hawaij.

Place the chicken in the dish and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or up to overnight.

Place the matzo meal in a shallow dish and stir in the 2 teaspoons salt. Dredge the chicken in the matzo meal and set aside.
