Oven Baked Panko Chicken Sandwiches

Ok let me start off by admitting I had no idea what I was doing here. I have made panko chicken strips before, but not chicken sandwiches. I figured it couldn't be much different, and they truly weren't. They were an even bigger hit then the chicken strips to my kids which makes me super happy as they are who inspired me to come up with this in the first place.

My kids really love chicken sandwiches from fast food joints, and I wanted to make one a little healthier that they would gobble up just the same.

So I started with a box of Italian panko bread crumbs, a package of boneless chicken breasts, an egg, some wax paper and my meat tenderizer. Oh and buns of course. :)

Preheat your oven at 350. First I put the chicken in between some wax paper and gave it a good pounding.

These breasts were a bit thick, so I really had to go to town on it. Very therapeutic.

 It turned out looking sort of like this. I then cut it up in to shapes that would fit on a bun...which I neglected to take a picture of because I am a dork.

I then put the egg in to a bowl and whisked it a bit, and put the panko in a bowl as well.

Give her a little bath in the egg, and roll her around in the crumbs reeeaaaalll good. Put her on a cookie sheet.

I used the smaller (leftover) pieces to make a chicken wrap for my daughter's lunch the next day.

Now we like ours more on the drier side so I cooked them for about an hour. If you like them a little juicier, cook them for 40-45 minutes.

Pull them out and slap them on a bun.

I added some of this Sue Bee Honey BBQ sauce my friend brought me the other day. It was so delish! One of my daughters used mayo, the other ketchup. Just like when we go to a fast food joint! After one bite my middle daughter declared, "these are going to be a big hit on your blog mom!". I have the sweetest kids. :)

You could make these up the night before and have them ready to go in to the oven at night when you get home. You could also use regular panko, or lemon pepper panko, or you could as some of your own spices to add some heat! Buffalo panko sandwiches? YUM!
