Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large roasting pan or baking sheet with sides with parchment or grease lightly.
In a small dry skillet over medium low heat, toast the panko crumbs until lightly golden, stirring often. Pour into a wide, shallow dish and allow to cool.
Pound out the chicken breasts between two pieces of saran wrap to an even thickness. Season with salt and pepper.
Set up a dredging station for the chicken. In a wide, shallow bowl beat the eggs with 1 tablespoon water. Mix the crushed chips with the panko crumbs.
Working one at a time dip the chicken into the egg allowing excess to drip off then into the crumbs patting on with your hands. Place in pan. Sprinkle the tops with any leftover crumbs.
Bake until cooked through 12 - 20 minutes depending on size until the juices run clear and internal temperature reaches 165 to 174 degrees F. on a meat thermometer. Allow to sit five minutes before serving.
