    Prepare Ingredients and Bread Chicken

    Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Place panko on a plate. Coat chicken evenly with mayonnaise on both sides. Place chicken on panko and flip until coated, pressing gently to adhere.
