Chicken goes Wild West with a coating of smoky barbecue sauce underneath a crunchy golden crust. Grab your knife and fork and giddy up!


3 boneless, skinless chicken breast(s)
1/4 cup (60 mL) barbecue sauce
2 tbsp (30 mL) barbecue sauce
1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) poultry seasoning
1 cup (250 mL) panko breadcrumbs
1 cup (250 mL) breadcrumbs
cooking spray
1/4 cup (60 mL) mayonnaise
1/4 cup (60 mL) sour cream


1 Cut chicken into chunky pieces. Toss with 1/4 cup (60 mL) barbecue sauce and poultry seasoning, then lightly coat with panko crumbs.
2 Place on a foil-lined baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Spray chicken with cooking spray. This will help turn it golden and crunchy. Bake in preheated 400°F (200°C) oven until juices are clear when chicken is pierced with a knife tip or meat thermometer registers 165°F (74°C), about 20 minutes. Panko crumbs don't need to turn golden.
3 For a dipping sauce; stir mayonnaise or sour cream with 2 Tbsp (30 mL) barbecue sauce. Serve with fresh green beans and cucumber slices or celery and carrot sticks.
