Author: Lisa Kerhin


  • 3 chicken breasts boneless and skinless cut into 1 inch pieces OR one 1 1/2 lbs of chicken tenderloins
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups Panko breadcrumbs

For Honey Garlic Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce low sodium
  • 3 - 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 - 2 tbsp Sriracha sauce add more if you wish
  • salt and pepper to taste

  • sesame seeds optional for garnish
  • fresh chopped parsley optional for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray.
  • Make your breading station by having two shallow bowls ready. One for the Panko breadcrumbs and the other for the eggs.
  • Season beaten eggs with salt and pepper.
  • Add chicken to the eggs and toss to make sure each piece is fully coated in the egg mixture.
  • Then coat each piece of chicken with breadcrumbs and place on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and slightly golden brown.
  • While the chicken is cooking, add all the sauce ingredients to a small sauce pan.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat, then turn down the heat and cook for a couple 5 more minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Once the chicken is cooked through, place in a large bowl and pour some of the sauce over chicken. Toss with a spoon so that the chicken pieces are fully coated with the sauce.
  • If there's left over sauce, use for dipping.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and parsley, if desired.
  • Serve with vegetables or over rice
