Introduction

I love faux frying foods using panko. This crunchy, spicy chicken would be great on a taco salad. I love faux frying foods using panko. This crunchy, spicy chicken would be great on a taco salad.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded until uniform in thickness
    1 recipe Chef Meg's Taco Seasoning
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup panko bread crumbs
    1 cup low-sodium salsa

Tips

If you can't find panko, use crushed baked tortilla chips.


Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Combine the panko, taco seasoning and salt in a shallow dish.

Remove any fat from the chicken breasts. Pull the tenderloin away from the breast; it is on the under side of the breast. Slice the remaining breast into one inch strips. You should get 4 strips from each breast. Spray each strip with nonstick cooking spray, then dip into the bread crumbs to coat the entire surface. Transfer the chicken to a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until the meat reaches 165 degrees. Serve with salsa.

Each serving: 3 ounces chicken and 1/4 cup salsa

    What's the point of complaining about an ingredient you can't have or don't use? Find an alternative or don't make it. The recipe is there as a base, it's up to you to make substitutions. If you find a good one, share it.

    My family loved it & we will definitely make it again! Thanks for sharing. - 3/12/12

    I made this last week--after it was done cooking, I cubed it and set up a taco salad bar for me & hubby--chicken, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, avocado, sharp cheddar and salsa--very tasty! :D - 3/12/12

    Actual ratings are helpful and appreciated. "Sounds good" or "I'll try this tonight"....not so much. - 3/12/12

    We found it very easy and incredibly delicious. The only thing we did different is we used chicken tenders and pounded them out. They were crunchy and spicy but not too spicy. We all loved them. I would serve this to company! It was a pretty presentation, too! - 7/5/12
