  1. Sprinkle salt and black pepper over chicken breast tenderloins.
  2. Whisk eggs in a shallow bowl until smooth. Place panko in a separate shallow bowl.
  3. Dip both sides of each chicken breast in the eggs and then in the panko.
  4. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook 1/3 of the breaded tenderloins until crusts are golden and centers are no longer pink, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a large plate. Repeat with remaining oil and breaded tenderloins in 2 batches.
  5. Return all chicken to the skillet. Pour wing sauce over chicken. Sprinkle cheese on top. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If using chicken breasts instead of tenderloins, flatten and pound them first, and increase cook time.
  • Substitute seasoned bread crumbs for the Panko if desired.
  • Substitute provolone cheese for the mozzarella cheese if desired.
  • Tip
  • Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.
