This recipe is very easy and quick as well. It is simply the best of the breaded chicken breast recipes. The secret ingredient is Panko breadcrumbs. They are large and flaky.
Panko’s crustless bread is coarsely ground into airy, large flakes that give fried foods a light, crunchy coating. By using this type of breadcrumbs we can achieve an irresistible crunch without deep frying the chicken and instead simply baking the breaded chicken breasts.
The breading process is pretty basic: dip pieces of chicken into flour, egg and Panko breadcrumbs. Then lay them on the baking sheet covered by parchment paper and bake breaded chicken breast in the oven for 25-30 minutes at 425 degrees F. Completely effortless.
Those pan fried breaded chicken breast pieces are great for freezing as well. Place the pieces on the plate and freeze for 3 hours then transfer them into zip lock bags. Super convenient for quick meals during a busy week work. Just bake them from frozen for 30 minutes and voila, you have a quick, delicious meal that everyone will enjoy.
Those baked breaded chicken fingers are especially a huge hit with kids. Serve them with different dipping sauces and they will be gone in a flash. No greasy chicken fingers loaded with oil. Those are healthy and nutritious.
