Ingredients

• 1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs • 2 eggs, beaten • salt, to taste • pepper, to taste • 3 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, and cut into 1-inch pieces For the honey garlic sauce: • 1/4 cup honey • 1/4 cup soy sauce • 3 cloves garlic, minced • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce, optional • salt, to taste • pepper, to taste For the garnish: • sesame seeds, optional, to taste, • parsley, optional, to taste, chopped

Directions

Step 1

Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.

Step 2

Preheat the oven temperature to 375 degrees F.

Step 3

Add the breadcrumbs to a shallow dish.

Step 4

Add the beaten eggs to another shallow bowl or dish.

Step 5

Season the eggs with the salt and pepper.

Step 6

Form an assembly line by first dunking each piece of the chicken in the beaten egg mixture, then coating well with the breadcrumbs.

Step 7

Place the breaded chicken on the prepared baking sheet and repeat the process with the remaining chicken pieces.

Step 8

Bake in the oven until the chicken is golden and fully cooked through, about 165 degrees F when tested with a meat thermometer, about 20 minutes.

Step 9

While the chicken is baking, add the honey, soy sauce, garlic, sriracha, salt, and pepper all to a small saucepan.

Step 10

Bring the sauce mixture to a boil over medium heat.

Step 11

Once the contents boil, lower the temperature to a simmer and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring every so often.

Step 12

Once you have removed the chicken from the oven, pour the sauce over it and toss until all of the chicken pieces are well-coated.

Step 13

Garnish with the sesame seeds and parsley and serve.
