Ingredients

    1 tsp all-purpose flour
    1/2 tsp cornstarch
    1/4 tsp paprika
    1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
    1/4 tsp salt
    pinch of garlic powder
    pinch of turmeric
    1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, pounded to 1/3" thick
    olive oil spray
    1 egg white
    1 tsp fat-free milk
    3 1/2 Tbsp panko
    ground black pepper
    1 hamburger bun
    1/2 Tbsp light mayonnaise

Directions

In a small, resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, cornstarch, paprika, cayenne, salt, garlic powder, and turmeric. Shake to mix well. Add the chicken. Shake to completely coat the chicken with the flour mixture. Place in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes. Preheat the oven to 450. Lightly mist a small nonstick baking sheet with olive oil spray. In a small shallow bowl, combine the egg white and the milk. Beat with a fork until smooth. Place the panko on a small sheet of waxed paper set next to the egg-white mixture. Dip the chicken into the egg-white mixture, being sure to coat completely. Allow any excess egg-white mixture to drip off. Dip into the panko to coat completely. Repeat dipping into the egg-white mixture and the panko. Place on the baking sheet. Lightly mist both sides of the chicken with the olive oil spray. Season both sides to taste with black pepper. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the breading is crisp and the chicken is no longer pink. Meanwhile, preheat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place the bun top and bottom, cut sides down, in the pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until toasted. Place the bun bottom on a plate. Top with the chicken. Spread the mayonnaise evenly over the top bun and flip onto the sandwich.

  • This is my first recipe rating ever! I have been searching for recipes on the internet for 10 years. I felt compelled to leave comments because this is THAT good! The only thing I did differently was fry it in a pan. My kids requested this for Super Bowl Sunday and I can't wait to make this again! - 2/3/13

  • I made this recipe this past week from devin's cookbook and it was amazing! Tasted like the real deal. I went ahead and made a bunch up and then froze them individually.
    One comment/note: the chicken breast should ONLY weigh 3 oz. For mine that meant each breast half was cut into 3 portions.
