For the bread crumbs

  • One 3/4 cups panko breadcrumbs

  • Oil spray

For the batter

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise

  • 1/2 tbsp dijon mustard (or any other mustard of choice)

  • 2 tbsp flour

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • Black pepper

For the chicken

  • 500 g/1 lb chicken tenderloins (or chicken breast cut into 2/3" / 1.5cm thick slices, lengthwise)

  • Oil spray


  1. Preheat oven to 200C/390F.

  2. Spread panko on a baking tray, spray with oil (spray vertically to avoid blowing the panko off the tray), then bake for 3 to 5 minutes until light golden. Transfer to bowl.

  3. Place a rack on a baking tray (not critical but bakes more evenly).

  4. Place the Batter ingredients in a bowl and whisk with a fork until combined.

  5. Add the chicken into the Batter and toss to coat.


  1. Put a piece of chicken into the panko bowl.

  2. Pat down gently to press the breadcrumbs onto the chicken, then transfer onto baking tray.

  3. Repeat with remaining chicken.

  4. Spray lightly with oil. Bake for 10 minutes (if small) - 15 minutes (medium to large)

  5. Remove from oven and serve immediately, with the 3-ingredient Honey Mustard
