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
Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
Preheat the oven temperature to 375 degrees F.
Add the breadcrumbs to a shallow dish.
Add the beaten eggs to another shallow bowl or dish.
Season the eggs with the salt and pepper.
Form an assembly line by first dunking each piece of the chicken in the beaten egg mixture, then coating well with the breadcrumbs.
Place the breaded chicken on the prepared baking sheet and repeat the process with the remaining chicken pieces.
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.
While the chicken is baking, add the honey, soy sauce, garlic, sriracha, salt, and pepper all to a small saucepan.
Bring the sauce mixture to a boil over medium heat.
Once the contents boil, lower the temperature to a simmer and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring every so often.
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.
Garnish with the sesame seeds and parsley and serve.
