Panko Chicken Strips

As I generally don't cook from recipes, just get my ideas from them....I figured I'd better record this one as the chicken was devoured and Paperman commented several times on the yummy lunch and best chicken he's eaten. When we made these today dd3 was taking care of the chicken to the flour, I was in charge of moving the chicken from the flour to the egg and DD2 seasoned and dipped the chicken in the panko crumbs. Ds was just busy climbing from chair to chair and dipping his hands in the flour. It is a great way to get kids involved, plus I do agree, they tend to eat better if they help make it.
We used honey mustard, bbq sauce and ketchup for dipping.

Panko Crusted Chicken Strips

1 1/2 lbs chicken breast, cut in strips/tenders
2 eggs, beaten
1 t franks red hot sauce

flour


1/2 pkg panko bread crumbs (can be found in the Asian section)
2 t olive oil
salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika
(mix bread crumbs, oil and seasonings)

prepare a baking sheet by covering with foil, spray with cooking spray, place a cooling rack on the foil and spray that also.

add the hot sauce to the eggs (it really doesn't make it spicy). dip chicken pieces in the egg, then flour then seasoned bread crumbs. place chicken on cooling rack/pan. repeat. spray chicken with cooking spray. bake 375 degrees until golden brown and cooked through. cooking time will vary based on size of chicken pieces.
