Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I make this a less spicy variation, for grandchildren using Lawry's Seasoning salt ... to keep Panko from falling off, try just a little light mayo or Mas des Bories olive oil on patted dry chicken. Submitted by:

This recipe looks yummy and it stays within my sodium guidelines! Submitted by:

This is really fantastic! I made some simple modifications. I dipped the chicken in fat free milk then rolled in the Panko with my own seasonings; pinch of slat, Italian, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin and chili powder and sprayed the top with Pam. Submitted by:

If you use the baked tortilla chips, decrease or eliminate the salt or the coating will be too salty.

If you use a pump oil sprayer, like a Misto, you won't get the chemicals from the canned nonstick cooking spray.

We loved it! Ours didn't turn out "crunchy" but they were tasty with the salsa. I served it with corn on the cob (inspired by the photo!) and my husband pitched it and made baked lime corn tortilla chips (one of the few things he knows how to make, and he does it well). I love the calorie count too! Submitted by:

Keep in mind that any substitutions will change the calorie count for the recipe. Other than that, thanks for the ideas and ratings. Submitted by:

These were super yummy -- light and crispy, moist on the inside. I added a little parm cheese to the breadcrumb mix. I served it with tropical dipping sauce. Delicious. One thing I don't get is how to calculate the oil spray in nutrition. This is a common Chef Meg trick - is there a formula? Submitted by:

I made this tonight and served sliced over a salad...and while it was good and we enjoyed it, I do find myself wondering if the panko breadcrumbs are worth the calories. This is the second recipe I've tried using them (the other was boneless pork chops) and neither have been "crunchy" or "crispy". Submitted by:
