Cut each chicken breast half into thirds; place on flat surface on a piece of plastic wrap. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 tablespoon jerk spice mix over both sides of chicken. Cover chicken with another sheet of plastic wrap and pound to a 3/8-inch thickness. In large skillet over medium heat, place canola oil. Dredge chicken in flour, then in egg mix and again in flour, working with 3 or 4 pieces at a time. Add chicken to pan and cook about 3 minutes per side; transfer to baking sheet lined with foil. Place chicken in the preheated oven for about 5 minutes until fully cooked. Remove chicken to a platter and set aside.

Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg and dot with 4 tablespoons unsalted butter. Cover with foil and place in preheated oven. Bake about 30 minutes; remove and keep tented.

Add 1 cup sour cream and 3/4 cup chopped cilantro, pulse to blend.
