  • 3 Tbsp. hot pepper sauce (like Tabasco)
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 large eggs
  • 8 5-oz. raw chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
  • 2 cups whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs (Japanese-style breadcrumbs)
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper


  1. Combine hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and eggs in a shallow dish; mix well.

  2. Add chicken; soak, turning once, for 30 minutes.

  3. Preheat oven to 425° F.

  4. Line baking sheet with foil; lightly coat with spray.
