Cripsy Oven-Baked Chicken
Forget greasy fried chicken! This oven-baked chicken recipe has all of the juiciness and crunch you'd expect from fried chicken, without the added fat and calories.
- 3 Tbsp. hot pepper sauce like Tabasco
- 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 2 large eggs
- 8 (5 oz.) raw chicken breasts boneless, skinless
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 2 cups whole-grain Panko bread crumbs
- ½ tsp. ground black pepper
Combine hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and eggs in a shallow dish; mix well.
Add chicken; soak, turning once, for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425° F.
Line baking sheet with foil; lightly coat with spray. Set aside.
Combine bread crumbs and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag; shake to combine. Set aside.
Working with one piece at a time, lift chicken from egg mixture, letting excess drip back into bowl, and drop into bag containing bread crumb mixture. Seal bag and shake to coat; repeat with remaining chicken.
Place chicken on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, turning after 10 minutes; or until no longer pink in the middle and golden brown.
