Baked Panko Chicken

Baked Panko ChickenWell here we are, another weekend came and went and it’s back at it for another long work week. So what better way to bid the weekend adieu than with a simple, delicious and healthful baked chicken. I make this frequently in my house, especially when I want something fast during the week.

This is yet another recipe that I needed to re-photograph. I’m pretty proud that my photos have been much improved upon and I love looking back and seeing all the old photos.

Do you have a go to weeknight meal that you could prepare with your eyes closed? This is mine. I could prepare this dish with my eyes closed, hands tied behind my back and make it backwards..Okay we didn’t have to go that far, but this is a very quick and easy weeknight meal that is not only requested often, but when I come home some nights and ‘just don’t want to cook’, this is what I make. It’s totally satisfying.

I love this dish for many reasons. It’s a delicious, flavorful and easy way to prepare chicken. This is also incredibly easy to pair with. Serve with your favorite roasted veggies or on top of pasta. This is also the same panko topping recipe that I use to make my Healthy Baked Italian Chicken.

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons Butter
  • 1 box {8 ounces} Panko Breadcrumbs

    Tried this tonight, but with pork chops rather than chicken, and they were fantastic!! Will be making it with chicken very soon!

    Love making chicken with panko and all the spices and herbs and change ups you can do with it! I love switching out the egg sometimes for other sauces for another layer of flavor.

    I am going back and retaking a bunch of my pics lately too. I think our photography skills are improving, yay us!

    I searched on Pinterest for a Panko chicken recipe and found yours. I made it tonight, and it truly was the best Panko chicken I’ve ever had. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe, and will definitely keep it in my menu folder for next time.
