3. Coat Chicken  

Prepare a coating mixture by combining breadcrumbs (preferably panko for extra crispiness) with a bit of flour. Dredge each piece of seasoned chicken in the coating mixture, ensuring they're evenly coated.

4. Arrange on Baking Sheet 

Place the coated chicken pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Make sure to leave some space between each piece so they can crisp up evenly.

7. Prepare Fries 

While the chicken is baking, prepare your fries according to your preference. You can use store-bought frozen fries or make your own by cutting potatoes into strips, seasoning them with salt and pepper, and baking or frying until crispy.
