- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 2 cups seasoned panko
- 1/3 cup parmesan

Remove chicken from brine and gently shake off to remove extra marinade.
Coat each piece of chicken in the panko parmesan mix and place on top of a cooling rack that’s on top of a baking sheet. Be sure that the pieces don’t crowd each other.
Drizzle with a tiny bit of olive oil on top and then place in the center rack of the oven.
