"Fried" Chicken

Submitted by: JENNMARIE0830

Introduction

My family loves fried chicken, so when I saw something similar done on Biggest Loser, I had to try it. It's a great alternative to "fried" chicken. My family loves fried chicken, so when I saw something similar done on Biggest Loser, I had to try it. It's a great alternative to "fried" chicken.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    ~ (1) lb. Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (approx 4 or 5 pieces)
    ~ 1 cup japanese style Panko bread crumbs
    ~ 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
    ~ 1/2 cup liquid egg substitute (egg beaters)
    ~ Sea Salt & Pepper

Directions

~ Preheat Oven to 425 degree.

~ Mix flour and seasoning in gallon size ziplock bag. Put the panko bread crumbs in a 2nd gallon size ziplock bag. In a bowl, put the egg substitute.

~ 1 at a time, place the chicken in the flour/seasoning bag and shake to coat. Remove the chicken, shake off excess and dip into the egg substitute coating both sides. Again, shake off excess and place the chicken into the panko bread crumb bag and shake to coat.

~ Remove chicken, shaking off excess; and place onto a broiler pan.

~ Cook at 425 for about 25 minutes. Adjust your cooking time to allow for the thickness of your chicken.

~ You can also use Breast tenderloins for "chicken strips" or you can cut the breast into 1 inch pieces to make "chicken nuggets". Cooking times may decrease slightly in "strips" or "nuggets"

    To cut more calories, I came up with using low fat buttermilk & pre-soaking the chicken in that to make it more moist and tender... it's lower in calories than egg or egg substitute. Plus I season the flour with paprika, dry mustard, and onion powder as well as pepper and salt to add a kick! - 3/26/09

    If you don't have panko, use crushed rice crispies or cheerios. I also add some fat free yogart to my egg wash. Seems to help the crubms stick better. - 3/23/09

    Fantastic!! I always cook "fried" chicken in the oven! Even with just breadcrumbs (no eggs, no flour) it's very good! I hate frying and I found out that almost anything fried can be cooked in the oven instead ;-) Even french fries are pretty good oven baked! - 3/22/09

    Sine i have gluten allergy i can not have wheat flour or bread crumbs. I used instant mashed potato flakes slightly browned in a skillet with spray butter then put them in the bag instead. I roll chicken in egg then put in bag to shake put it on tray then cook. Yum - 3/29/09

    This recipe is great! Another great way to do "fried chicken" is to blend fiber one and use that as bread crumbs. It tastes amazing and you get some great fiber from it! - 3/27/09

    Instead of the egg substitute, I just sprayed down the chicken with Pam's Olive Oil cooking spray. Excellent! - 6/30/09

    Sounds awesome, but beware of some panko brands as they have hydrogenated oils in them. Saving calories but overlooking your arteries is no good. - 4/6/09

    I love this recipe. Actually been making it for a couple of years and didn't know it was listed on here until today. The only thing is, I don't dip it in the egg mix twice, once is enough, twice just thickens the breading (and adds calories). - 4/14/09
