3 Tbsp. hot pepper sauce (like Tabasco)
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 large eggs
8 (5-oz.) raw chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
Nonstick cooking spray
2 cups whole-wheat Panko bread crumbs (Japanese-style bread crumbs)
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.
5. Combine bread crumbs and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag; shake to combine. Set aside.
