Welcome fellow Googlers to Or Whatever You Do! You have now landed on my most popular post on my blog, panko breaded juicy chicken breasts!
I made this as a quick lunch for my kids one day, and had no idea it would turn out as well as it did. I’m so glad you found this recipe, and my site, and I think you will love it. It is quick, easy, and delicious. (The recipe for the cheesy scalloped potatoes you see pictured is here.)

Panko Breaded Juicy Chicken Breasts
- 3 chicken breasts
- 3/4 - 1 cup cooking oil
- 1 cup flour divided
- 2/3 cup panko
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp seasoning salt Lawry's
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/8 tsp onion powder
- 1 large egg beaten
- 3 Tbsp milk
- Pinch salt & pepper
Place chicken breasts, one at a time, into a plastic bag. Flatten using a rolling pin or meat hammer until they are uniformly 1/2 - 3/4 inch thick. Repeat until each breast is pounded out. Cut breasts into palm-sized pieces.
Mix together 1/2 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 1/2 cup flour with a few shakes of salt and pepper. Mix well.
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.
Remove from oil and let sit for 3-4 minutes on a wire rack before serving.
