  • 4-6 chicken breasts
  • 3/4 - 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt optional
  • 4 eggs + 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • sauce
  • 2 cups brown sugar light or dark
  • 1/2 cup Frank's hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tsp fresh garlic minced
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp water


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Grease a baking sheet with olive oil.
  3. Slice chicken breasts into strips. Add chicken strips , salt ( if using) and flour to a large plastic resealable bag. Seal and toss to coat chicken in flour.
  4. Place panko crumbs in a bowl. In another bowl whisk together eggs and water. Dip floured chicken strips into egg mixture, then toss in panko crumbs to coat.
  5. Place coated chicken pieces on greased baking sheet and drizzle with a bit of olive oil. Bake 20 or so minutes until chicken is browned and cooked through.
  6. While chicken is cooking, prepare the sauce. Add brown sugar , minced garlic and hot sauce to a medium sauce pan and stir over medium-high heat until melted and mixture comes to a boil. Let simmer for a good 5 minutes . Remove from heat and stir in garlic powder and butter until smooth. Add water to thin out sauce as desired.
  7. When chicken strips are done cooking, dip chicken strips in sauce .
  8. Serve warm with ranch dressing or any dressing of your choice. We like buttermilk ranch. I also serve any extra spicy sauce on the side. Enjoy
