Crispy Baked Chicken Strips

1Preheat oven to 375 degrees, line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and place a cooking rack on top sprayed with cooking spray.

2In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter or heat oil of choice and add the panko crumbs, stirring often until golden brown about 3-5 minutes.


4In a shallow bowl, add the toasted panko crumbs and breadcrumbs; tossing to combine.

5In medium bowl whisk flour, eggs, mayonnaise, hot sauce, mustard, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper.

6Add the chicken to the batter, making sure to get a good coat.

7Allow the excess batter to drip from the chicken and place the chicken in the breadcrumb mixture; patting the crumbs into the chicken.

8Transfer the coated chicken to the prepared baking tray and repeat with remaining chicken.
