Chicken Romano

If you love fried food but can’t stand the grease and fat you will like this. It has all the flavor you would want without any of the unhealthy ingredients. I recommend adding a bit more cheese than breadcrumbs.


  • Package of skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • 1 egg for each 3 pieces of chicken
  • Japanese breadcrumbs (Panko)
  • Parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Thyme
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Lemons


  • Place an empty bowl in the freezer, we’ll need this for the egg white later on
  • 1 chicken breast per person and 1 egg for each 3 pieces of chicken breast
  • Rinse chicken with water and dry with a piece of paper towel
  • Take a bowl and add Japanese breadcrumbs, pecorino romano cheese (or parmesan cheese), thyme, salt and pepper and mix well
  • Remove empty bowl from the freezer and add an egg white (no yolk)
  • Stir the egg white well with a fork till foamy/frosty white (like beer foam)
  • Take a piece of chicken and rub both sides in the egg white
  • Then again rub both sides well in the bowl of breadcrumbs
  • Repeat steps 8-9 for each piece of chicken breast
  • Preheat oven at 400 degrees
  • Pour a thin cover of olive oil on a cookie sheet and then place the chicken on it
  • Bake the chicken for about 20 minutes
  • Serve with sliced lemons
