No deep fryer needed here because this chicken is 100 % baked! That’s right, it’s made in the oven and it comes out crunchy and crispy every time. It’s perfectly paired with a Citrus Teriyaki Sauce that is great for dipping, or even better just poured right over the chicken.
Japanese panko, the flaky and feather-light breadcrumbs, is the key ingredient to the crisp and the crunch. Each piece of chicken is coated with panko, then lightly covered with cooking spray before it is baked at a very high temperature that results in what looks and tastes like its deep fried…but it ain’t.
Make sure you don’t leave out the Citrus Teriyaki Sauce, and definitely don’t substitute it with another sauce. The chicken may have the crisp and the crunch but it’s really the sauce that makes the chicken taste so amazing. Serve it with steamed rice, over a bed of lettuce, or both. Enjoy!
