Recipe Notes

  • If you'd like a little heat, feel free to add some crushed red pepper flakes.
  • Use gluten-free panko if you want this recipe to be gluten-free.
  • Store leftovers in a container in the refrigerator.

Here's how to make it:

  1. On a plate, combine the panko, garlic powder, paprika and turmeric.
  2. Roll each chicken breast in the mixture until it is well coated with the breadcrumbs and seasonings. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, if desired.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Place the chicken breasts in the oil in the skillet.
  4. Fry the chicken until golden brown and crispy on both sides, about 7 to 9 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the breasts. Chicken is done when it reaches 165 degrees F on a food thermometer.
