  • 3 chicken breasts boneless and skinless, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups Panko breadcrumbs
  • sesame seeds optional
  • fresh chopped parsley optional

For Honey Garlic Sauce

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha sauce optional
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add the breadcrumbs to a shallow plate. Beat the eggs in another shallow plate.
  • Season beaten eggs with salt and pepper. Add chicken to the eggs and toss to make sure each piece is fully coated in the egg mixture.
  • Coat each piece of chicken with breadcrumbs and place on baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and slightly golden.
  • In the meantime add all the sauce ingredients to a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then turn down the heat and cook for a couple more minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Pour sauce over chicken and toss so that the chicken pieces are fully coated. If there's left over sauce, use for dipping. Garnish with sesame seeds and parsley if preferred.
  • Serve over rice and/or veggies.
