I created this recipe for my husband back in June of 2009, because he loves Ranch Dressing, and I was trying to create the taste & texture of fried chicken without the added fat. This recipe seems to fit the bill for our family.You get the crispy taste & texture of fried chicken, the chicken stays moist & juicy because the panko bread crumbs seems to help lock in the juices & flavor. We both loved it, & I have been making it ever since. The ranch dressing allows the panko to stick to the chicken.The addition of paprika helps the panko to get an even crispy golden brown color on the outside.

How to Make Rose Mary's Panko Breaded Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Spray or butter a shallow baking pan with cooking spray or butter, & set aside till needed. Combine panko bread crumbs with parmesan cheese, and add lemon pepper, garlic powder, paprika & steak seasoning. Mix together & put in a shallow dish.
  2. Pour ranch dressing in a separate shallow bowl or platter. Coat each piece of chicken with the ranch dressing and then dredge in the panko bread crumb mixture. Place each piece in the prepared baking dish. Bake in preheated 450 degree F. oven for 15 minutes.
  3. Then LOWER temperature to 325 degrees F. and continue baking for approximately 45 to 55 minutes, or until juices run clear. Pieces should be nice & golden brown, & extra crispy.
  4. Panko Bread crumbs is a Japanes bread crumb that makes your food nice & crispy, I also use it as toppings on casseroles. I get the best bargains on this item from Amazon. You can easily cut this recipe in half, and you can also use other parts of the chicken, my husband just prefers the breast.
