Crunchy Baked Chicken

with Apple Cider Sauce


Serves 4


4 boneless, skinless
chicken breasts
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 ½ Tbsp. all-purpose or whole- wheat flour
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Pound chicken pieces so that each piece is evenly flat for more consistent cooking.

Combine bread crumbs, flour, salt and pepper in a bowl or on a piece of wax paper.

Coat each chicken breast with the bread crumb mixture.

Bake the cutlets for 10 minutes, rotate the baking sheet and continue baking until golden brown and cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Drizzle with apple cider sauce.
