- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano

- Cooking spray

- In a shallow bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, dried oregano, salt, and pepper.
- Dip each chicken breast into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off, then coat the chicken in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere.
- Place the coated chicken breasts on the prepared baking sheet. Lightly spray the top of each chicken breast with cooking spray to help achieve a golden-brown and crispy crust.
