Baked Panko Chicken

Baked Panko Chicken

Baked Panko Chicken is the easiest weeknight meal. I make this frequently in my house, especially when I want something fast during the week.

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.
