  • In a medium bowl, mix the Parmigiano-Reggiano and the panko. In another medium bowl, mix the flour, sea salt and pepper. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the egg and water.

  • Rinse the chicken breasts under cold running water. Dip each piece of chicken in the flour, coating it well, then in the egg and finally in the panko mixture.

  • Place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle the melted butter evenly over each piece.

  • Bake for 15 minutes in the middle rack in the oven. Turn the oven to broil and move the chicken to the top oven rack. Broil for 5 minutes, or until the top is crispy and the chicken reaches 165° degrees on an instant-read thermometer.

Prepare the chipotle mayo
  • In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, pureed chipotles, liquid smoke, sugar, sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
