Egg Wash

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place a few pieces of chicken in egg wash and then into breading mixture and close with lid and shake until it is coated well.  Repeat with remainder of chicken.

Place coated chicken onto a greased tray and cook for 20 minutes.  If you like a crispier chicken, then broil for 1-2 minutes.

*Air Fryer:  We love our air fryer so if you opt to cook your chicken this way then set the temperature at 400 degrees and cook for 10-12 minutes.

*Other Options:  Feel free to change up the seasonings of your choice.  You can do oregano, basil, parsley, paprika, or poultry seasoning.
