  • ½ cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoons dried parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon granulated garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon coarse salt + 1 pinch
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 12 tablespoons water
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1″ thickness


  1. Using a meat mallet, pound the chicken to a 1 inch thickness.
  2. In a shallow bowl, whisk the egg with 1 – 2 tablespoons of water. In a separate bowl, mix together the Panko, garlic, parsley, and salt & pepper.
  3. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture, followed by the breading mixture until completely coated on both sides.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add breaded chicken and fry for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165˚F.
  5. Remove from pan and allow chicken to rest on a cooling rack for about 5 minutes before serving or slicing.
