Monday Meals with Monica: Breaded Chicken

It’s Monday Meals with Monica! Today, I’m going to share the simplest and most versatile way to bread chicken (or any protein for that matter!).



  • Chicken
  • Two eggs
  • 1 cup (plus depending upon how much you are making) flour
  • 1 cup (plus depending upon how much you are making) bread crumbs or panko


Dip the chicken in the flour then egg then breadcrumbs/panko. That’s it. That easy.

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 350*.


To add more flavor: add seasonings to the breadcrumbs/panko. Make a sauce: pesto, marinara, soy sauce and peanut butter, bbq, etc. You can also use this as a base for things like chicken parmesan, chicken rollups, salad, etc.


If you have questions or suggestions for the next Monday Meal, please comment in the section below!
