Panko Breaded Juicy Chicken Breasts
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • ¾ - 1 cup cooking oil
  • 1 cup flour, divided
  • ⅔ cup panko
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp seasoning salt, Lawry\'s
  • ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ⅛ tsp onion powder
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • Pinch salt & pepper
  1. Place chicken breasts, one at a time, into a plastic bag. Flatten using a rolling pin or meat hammer until they are uniformly ½ - ¾ inch thick. Repeat until each breast is pounded out. Cut breasts into palm-sized pieces.
  2. Mix together ½ cup flour, panko, salt, garlic powder, seasoning salt, cayenne, and onion powder. Set aside. In separate bowl, mix egg and milk. In another bowl, place ½ cup flour with a few shakes of salt and pepper. Mix well.
  3. Using a fork, dunk each piece of chicken first in the flour, then into the egg wash, and finally coat with the panko mixture. Make sure in each step the breast is coated completely. Fry over medium to medium high heat in preheated oil until golden brown on both sides and inside is no longer pink, approximately 6-7 minutes depending on your stove.
  4. Remove from oil and let sit for 3-4 minutes on a wire rack before serving.

    Somehow, you've made chicken 100x juicier than the juiciest I've seen it go. How did you do it? I don't feel like eating at fast food restaurants anymore.

  3. nyc catering says

    Very juicy indeed. Remember how McDonald's started small as a drive-in eatery? Maybe you can have your own fried chicken chain someday.

  4. irish restaurants says

    What I like about your juicy chicken is that you don't need secret herbs and spices to make it. In fact, you just shared the recipe to everyone!

    Panko bread crumbs are ideal for deep fried foods. They taste good and create a deliciously crunchy crust.

    I try to make salmon which is marinated, i pat the panko on top, but when i try to pour the marinade on top so the panko isn’t just dry and crumbly, two things happen:
    1) b/c the marinade has sesame oil, it rolls off without affecting the panko
    2) some panko falls off with the pressure of pouring marinade on top.

    any suggestions on getting the panko wet before baking? thx!

      Often I will toss my panko in some melted butter if I’m going to be baking it as opposed to frying it. Also, the best way to coat almost anything with panko and make it stick it to first dredge in flour, then coat in an egg/milk wash, then roll in panko. If you are frying the panko breaded salmon in oil you don’t need any fats in the crumb. If you are baking it try tossing the panko in melted butter before you put it on the salmon. Hope that helps!

    i like to frie my chicken this same way except i like to frie it til it gets the perfect golden color and then i finish it in the oven until it is completely cooked. turns out beutiful and moist. my questin though is if the breading will stick to the chicken better if you only use the egg whites in the wash instead of the whole egg.
