Today we will be making the baked version of this breaded chicken which is way healthier and better than the fried version.

Just to let you know that below I have shared this recipe with both chicken breast and tenders.

How to Make Panko Breaded Chicken?

This is the panko version of parmesan crusted chicken.

baked breaded chicken


  • 1.25 lbs or 4 chicken cutlets
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup grated or zested parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary, minced


  1. Thoroughly washes the chicken and season with salt and pepper on both the sides.
  2. Now take 3 bowls, in the first one add zested parmesan cheese, then the eggs in the second and panko in the third bowl.
  3. Add the rosemary to the egg bowl and whisk together until well combined.
  4. Now let’s bread the chicken breasts, first dip it into the parmesan, then into the egg bowl, drip off any excess, and finally dip into the panko bowl; continue to bread the chicken with this same process.
  5. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and once hot, add olive oil (about 2-3 tbsp.), then add 2 or 3 chicken cutlets at a time and fry until golden and crispy for about 4-5 minutes on each side.
  6. Repeat the same with the remaining cutlets, and enjoy!

Can we store leftover breaded chicken cutlets?

Yes, of course! Store the cutlets in an airtight container or well wrapped in the refrigerator for next day or up to 3 days.

Can we Freeze the Breaded Chicken Breast?

Yes! After cooking allow it to completely cool, place in freezer bags separated with non-stick baking paper (this will avoid it from sticking)

How reheat the frozen or Breaded Chicken Cutlets from the fridge?

It is pretty much the same process for both, place the chicken cutlets on a baking tray and bake at 400F/200C for about 15-18 minutes.
