Why Double Dip Your Chicken?

Double-dipping the chicken in the egg and flour mixture helps to create a crispy outer layer. You can do a single coat if you prefer but it won’t be as crispy.

Why Use Panko Bread Crumbs?

Panko bread crumbs are Japanese-style breadcrumbs. They’re flakier than traditional breadcrumbs and create a crispy outer layer. This makes them perfect for adding a little extra crisp to your sandwich.

How Can I Lower The Calories Even More?

If you’re looking to lower the calories, even more, you can use low-fat mayo or leave it off altogether. You can also use a whole wheat bun, bread, or lettuce wrap. If you want to take it even further you could leave out one egg yolk and the panko crumbs.

Why Spray the Chicken With Oil?
