Panko Chicken Breasts

Like I have repeatedly stated, I rely on easy and quick meals prepared under 30 minutes during busy days.  When I go to Whole Foods Market, I always purchase chicken breasts.  I usually "pre-season" my chicken overnight with onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and a couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce (a favorite).  I love to use panko breadcrumbs (another favorite)...the crunch is so satisfying!


I place the chicken breasts into each "dunking station," which consists of flour, paprika, a little salt; beaten eggs; and panko breadcrumbs.  I have also replaced the beaten eggs for plain yogurt in the past...


I place each chicken breast in a medium-hot pan with canola oil until they become golden brown, and finish them off in the oven...


With a bag of salad in my fridge, it's a perfect meal...


This meal was accompanied with a parmesan and peppercorn creamy dressing, topped with shredded parmesan...



This following meal was joined with a mixed salad, topped with a mixture of yogurt dressing and sriracha, along with some shredded parmesan...



This meal was combined with arugula, topped with chopped pancetta that was quickly broiled in the oven, with a creamy yogurt dressing...



For this following meal, I cooked some chopped bacon in a medium hot pan and set aside.  With the residual bacon fat, I browned the chicken breasts for approximately 3-5 minutes on each side and finished them off in the oven.  I also sauteed some green cabbage with minced garlic, and topped the meal with the bacon "crumbles."  This whole process took approximately 45 minutes to prepare...



With a glass of your favorite white wine or light red, it makes a perfect ending to a hectic day!
