Easy Skillet Breaded Chicken

Easy Skillet Breaded Chicken

You can simply cook this chicken in a skillet or baked in the oven. Either way it’s delicious. My girls prefer it in the oven, Steve loves it in the skillet and I can go either way.

mimm - skillet chicken


  • 1 tablespoon + more for dipping olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons Italian herb bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • chicken breasts or tenderloins (I cut up some into nugget size for the girls and I use tenderloins for Steve and I.) (If you are using chicken breast make sure to pound it thin, otherwise the breading will burn and the chicken won’t cook.)


  1. If using the oven preheat it to 400 degrees.
  2. Place 2 tsps. (you may need to add more as you go) of olive in one bowl and the remaining 3 ingredients in another.
  3. Once you are all ready heat 1/2 tablespoon olive oil in skillet (I use a cast iron skillet) on medium heat.
  4. Dip chicken into oil, then in the bread crumb mixture once coated place on either parchment lined baking sheet or in prepared skillet.
  5. If baking, spray chicken with oil before placing in the oven for 10-15 minutes (flipping approximately halfway through).
  6. If cooking in skillet, cook chicken for about 5 minutes on each side (more if you are using larger pieces). I always drizzle another 1/2 tablespoon oil over the chicken before flipping.
  7. Once the chicken is cooked through enjoy with your favorite side; rice, pasta, veggies and that’s it!!

I told you it was easy and trust me it’s delicious. I can’t wait for you to try it and once you do let me know what you think.

  1. This looks sooo good! I always grill my chicken on the George Foreman but it’s such a pain to clean. I’m definitely going to try baking it! 🙂
