  • 1 1/2 lbs chicken breast trimmed and cut into strips (approximately 3 large breasts)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs (I used Italian but regular works great too)
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • cooking spray


  1. Preheat the oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.

  2. In a shallow dish or pie pan, whisk together the flour, salt and pepper. In another shallow dish, beat the eggs lightly. In a third dish, whisk together the regular and panko bread crumbs.

  3. Dip each piece of chicken in the flour, then in the egg, then in the bread crumbs, and place on the prepared baking sheet. (I find that it helps to use one hand for dipping in the dry ingredients and one hand for dipping in the eggs, to prevent making a big mess.)
  4. Spray each of the chicken strips lightly with cooking spray. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Enjoy!
