This easy recipe for crispy and brown panko baked chicken can be made with only 7 basic ingredients!
This recipe was developed using Diamond Crystal kosher salt. To substitute Morton kosher or regular table salt, use only 1/2 teaspoon in the panko mixture.
If you don't have a wire rack, you can cook the chicken directly on the metal baking sheet.
My pieces of chicken were about 3/4 inch (1.9 cm) thick after slicing in half. Cook times will vary based on how thick your chicken pieces are and your own oven.
The nutrition information below was calculated to include 1 1/2 teaspoons Diamond Crystal kosher salt, 5 seconds of cooking spray, and 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, as I always have about half leftover after dipping. This information is an estimate only, provided by an online nutrition calculator. The nutrition counts of your dish will vary based on the brand and exact amounts of ingredients used.
