You can even place the chicken breasts between two layers of cling wrap instead of a zip-top bag if you prefer.

  • In a single shallow dish, mix panko bread crumbs, grated parmesan cheese, pepper, salt, garlic powder, oregano, and black pepper.
  • In another shallow dish, whisk one egg.
  • Dip one chicken breast to the egg, then into the bread crumb mix. Make sure chicken breast is fully coated in the crumb mixture, and gently press with your hands do help the crumbs stick to the poultry. Put chicken breast on a prepared baking sheet, then repeat with remaining pieces of chicken.
