Who doesn't love crispy chicken? It's a favourite dish for many people, whether you're having a family dinner, a picnic, or just a fun meal at home.


Crispy chicken is delicious because it has a crunchy outside and a juicy inside. One of the best ways to make this tasty treat is by using bread crumbs. Bread crumbs make the chicken extra crunchy and add a lot of flavor.

In this recipe, we will learn how to make crispy chicken with bread crumbs. It's easy to do and doesn't take too long. Let's get started and make some yummy crispy chicken!


To make crispy chicken with bread crumbs, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts (you can also use thighs or drumsticks)
  • 1 cup of bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup of grated cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
  • Cooking spray or oil

Here is the equipment you will need:

  • Baking sheet
  • Mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Tongs or a fork

1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

2. If you are using chicken breasts, cut them into smaller pieces if they are too large. This helps them cook faster and more evenly.


3. Pat the chicken pieces dry with a paper towel. This helps the coating stick better.

1. In the first bowl, put the flour.

2. In the second bowl, crack the eggs and add the milk. Whisk them together until well mixed.


3. In the third bowl, mix the bread crumbs, cheese, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.

1. Take a piece of chicken and dip it into the flour. Make sure it is completely covered, then shake off any extra flour.

2. Next, dip the chicken into the egg mixture. Let any extra egg drip off.


3. Finally, press the chicken into the breadcrumb mixture. Make sure it is completely covered with breadcrumbs. Repeat with all the chicken pieces.

  1. Place the coated chicken pieces on the baking sheet. Make sure they are not touching each other.
  2. Spray the top of the chicken with cooking spray or drizzle a little oil over them. This helps them get extra crispy.
  3. Put the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.

You can check if the chicken is done by cutting into a piece. The juices should run clear, and there should be no pink in the middle.

  • For extra flavour, you can add different spices to the breadcrumb mixture, like onion powder, chilli powder, or Italian seasoning.
  • If you don't have cheese, you can leave it out completely.
  • To make the chicken even healthier, you can use whole wheat bread crumbs instead of regular ones.
  • If you don't want to bake the chicken, you can also fry it in a pan with some oil. Just make sure to cook it until it is golden brown and cooked through.
