For an even coating on the chicken, place the panko, Parmesan cheese and seasonings in a food processor and pulse together. This ensures the panko and grated cheese are even in size and consistency.

  • Chicken breast, raw, 1 lb(s), (four 4-oz pieces), boneless and skinless
  • Egg whites, 2 large
  • Panko bread crumbs, 1 cup(s)
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, ½ cup(s)
  • Basil, dried, 2 tsp(s), leaves
  • Oregano, dried, 2 tsp(s), leaves
  • Garlic powder, 1 tsp(s)
  • Onion powder, 1 tsp(s)
  • Olive oil spray, 1 x two-second spray(s)
  • Marinara sauce, 2 cup(s)
  • Part-skim mozzarella cheese, ½ cup(s), shredded

Method

Preheat oven to 375°F. Using a mallet, pound each chicken breast to ¼-inch thickness; set aside.

Place the egg whites in a medium bowl. In another medium bowl, combine the panko, Parmesan cheese, basil, oregano, garlic powder and onion powder.

Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Dip each chicken breast into the egg whites, then dredge in the breading mixture until evenly coated. Lay chicken fillets on the baking sheet. Bake 15–20 minutes or until chicken is golden brown and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.

Top the chicken with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese and serve.

Tip: If you prefer, you can cook the chicken in an air fryer. Lightly spray each fillet with cooking spray. Place in air fryer without crowding and cook at 300°F for about 15–20 minutes or until chicken is golden brown and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
