Spicy Oven Fried Chicken for Two

I have always love a Wendy's Spicy Chicken Breast. While I wasn't trying to duplicate it, I wanted some of that taste but with little fuss. Well it's very close especially for a oven fried chicken.

As usual, I couldn't find anything that I really wanted to do by Googling.  I wanted oven for two reason. First I'm too busy right now to pay attention to frying nor to clean up after. Second, I'm on a low fat health kick and this has almost zero.  Put it on a whole wheat bun with some low fat mayo and pat yourself on the back for how good you're being.

Rating:
Notes: I spent about 20 minutes prep time but it should have been about 10-15 (I was combining recipes as I cooked). Cooking time right at 30 minutes.

Tools: Cooking rack

Ingredients:
2 skinless boneless chicken breasts trimmed
1 egg
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 t paprika
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/4 t cayenne pepper

Instructions:
1) Preheat oven to 425 convection.
2) Trim chicken breast. Rinse under running water and pat dry.
3) Establish dredge lines with 1/4 cup flour in first pan. Separate egg and place white in second pan and then whip with fork. Discard yoke. In third pan place remaining 1/4 cup flour and all other ingredients and mix well.
4) Prep cooking pan with aluminum foil and cooking grate. Spray with Pam.
5) Dredge dried chicken in flour and shake off excess then egg and finally the flour/Panko/spice mix and place on cooking grate.
6) Give the top a brief spray of Pam. Place in oven and cook until internal temp of 165. About 30 minutes.
