Whisk egg whites, egg, 4-1/2 teaspoons curry powder and salt in shallow bowl to blend. Heat 2 teaspoons vegetable oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat 3 chicken breasts with flour, shaking off excess. Dip into egg mixture. Add to skillet and saute until cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to platter. Repeat with 2 teaspoons oil and remaining chicken, making sure skillet has cooled down appropriately before starting second batch. Tent chicken with foil to keep warm.

Return chicken to skillet and turn to coat with sauce. Transfer chicken to platter. Drizzle with any remaining sauce and serve.
