For crispy, flavorful chicken, make sure to remove any excess flour before proceeding.
How do you get panko to stick without eggs?
Add enough milk or yogurt to a bowl and submerge the item before rolling it in the breading. You can thin out thick yogurts by adding a splash of milk. You can also use olive oil or melted butter to help breading stick, which have the added bonus of lending flavors to your food.
