Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1 cup fresh bread crumbs (we used Panko bread crumbs)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley or 1/2 tsp. dried parsley
2 large egg whites
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, pounded to an even thickness (we used chicken tenderloins/strips)

Preheat oven to 400º. Set a rack on a sheet pan and spray with olive oil cooking spray (cooking the chicken on a rack will allow it to get crispy on all sides).

2. In a shallow bowl or pie plate, stir together bread crumbs, Parmesan, cayenne pepper and parsley. In a separate bowl or pie plate lightly beat egg whites with garlic, salt & pepper.

3. Dip chicken breasts into egg white mixture; then press into crumb mixture, coating thoroughly. Set the chicken on the rack; bake for 25 minutes or until crumbs are golden brown and chicken is cooked through.
