  • 3 cups bread crumbs, or as needed

  1. Whisk eggs, honey, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, and garlic together in a bowl. Mix bread crumbs, salt, and pepper together in a shallow bowl.

  2. Heat 1/2 to 1 inch of vegetable oil in a heavy skillet to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). You can also use a deep fryer.

  3. Put chicken slices in the egg mixture and knead until fully coated. Press chicken in the bread crumbs until evenly coated.
