Simple Moist & Crisp Breaded Chicken Breasts

Simple Moist & Crisp Breaded Chicken Breasts

These are great for bento lunchboxes or those days when you want a voluminous meal. They also come in handy on days when you defrost the frozen breast meat just bit too much!!


Chicken breast
Salt and pepper
to taste
2 to 3 tablespoons
about 1 cup
Vegetable oil
as needed


1. Cut the chicken breasts into equally thick pieces so that they can be cooked through easily. Place them on a chopping board and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
2. Place the meat into a plastic bag and add the mayonnaise.
3. Massage the meat from the outside of the bag so that the mayonnaise coats the meat completely.
4. Add panko to the bag.
5. Let in a little bit of air and then shake the bag so that the panko coat each piece of chicken evenly.
6. Heat a somewhat large amount of oil in a frying pan until it slides easily around the pan (over medium heat).
7. Pan-fry the meat until both sides are crisp and nicely browned. Midway through frying, if the oil disappears, add more and continue frying!
8. Once fried, place on a paper towel to drain off the excess oil. (I placed the paper towel on top of the rack.) After draining the oil, arrange on a dish and it's done.
9. Use the paper towel that you used to drain the oil and wipe the frying pan clean. This'll make it easier for you to wash your pan.
