Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1½ cups Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Preheat Oven and Prepare Baking Sheet: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Prepare the Breading Station: Set up a breading station with three shallow dishes. In the first dish, place the flour seasoned with salt and pepper. Beat the eggs with water in the second dish. Mix Panko breadcrumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper in the third dish.
  3. Bread the Chicken: Pat the chicken cutlets dry with paper towels. Dredge each cutlet in flour, shaking off excess. Dip into the egg mixture, then press into the Panko mixture, ensuring the cutlets are evenly coated.
  4. Bake the Cutlets: Place breaded cutlets on the prepared baking sheet. Spray the tops of the cutlets lightly with cooking spray. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through (internal temperature should reach 165°F or 75°C) and the breading is golden and crispy.
  5. Garnish and Serve: Remove from oven, garnish with chopped parsley, and serve hot.
