Tuxedo Sesame Crusted Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Leslulu

I found this on McCormick's website. It uses panko (Japanese bread crumbs) which makes this chicken so light and crispy. My family loves it. I am a huge fan of panko now!

This had a great flavor, but it was a little salty I think next time I would use 1/2 a teaspoon of salt. It was also a little dry I think it would taste excellent with a wasabi cream sauce. I served it with a wasabi soy dipping sauce. Thank you so much for the recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the panko and sesame seeds in a shallow dish.
  2. Beat egg, garlic powder, salt and red pepper in another shallow dish.
  3. Dip chicken in egg mixture.
  4. Coat chickent evently on both sides in panko bread crumb mixture, pressing firmly so mixture sticks to chicken.
  5. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large, nonstick skillet on medium heat.
  6. Add chicken; several pieces at a time; cook about 5 minutes per side or until chicken is brown and cooked through.
  7. Add additional chicken and olive oil until all is cooked through.
  8. I cover the cooked chicken loosely with tin foil and let it sit for about 5 minutes. This step just helps to keep it juicy.
