Take out your Chicken Breast, trim the fat off of them, and then cut them in half. Combine all of your ingredients into a bowl aside from your Japanese Style Bread Crumbs and 4 Large Eggs. Mix those ingredients together. Take out another bowl and add your Japanese Style Bread Crumbs into it. Take out one more bowl and add in your 4 Large Eggs. Mix those together. Take out a baking dish. Quickly dip your Chicken Breast halves into your egg mix, then in your Japanese Style Bread Crumbs, and place them into your baking dish. Evenly distribute any extra egg mix or Japanese Style Bread Crumbs over the top. Use one of your hands (or a spoon) to evenly distribute the first mix you made over the top. Bake on 375°F/190°C for 40:00-45:00. Mouthgasm!

Tips:

  • Top with some fat free sour cream and salsa!
