  • 3 pounds chicken breast tenderloins

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 6 large eggs

  • 1 ½ cups panko bread crumbs

  • 9 tablespoons canola oil

  • ¾ cup Buffalo wing sauce (such as Frank's®), or to taste

  • 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Season chicken with salt and black pepper. Set aside.

  2. Whisk eggs in a shallow bowl until smooth. Place panko in a separate shallow bowl.

  3. Dip chicken in eggs, then press into panko to coat.

  4. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook 1/3 of the breaded chicken in hot oil until crust is golden and center is no longer pink, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with remaining oil and breaded chicken in 2 batches.

  5. Return pan-fried chicken to the skillet. Pour wing sauce over chicken and sprinkle cheese on top. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.


You can use chicken breasts instead of tenderloins; flatten and pound them first and increase cook time.

You can substitute seasoned bread crumbs for panko if desired.

You can substitute provolone cheese for mozzarella cheese if desired.
