Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
If your chicken breasts are not even thickness, pound them even.

Place breadcrumbs and taco seasoning in another shallow dish; stir to combine.
Dip each chicken breast in the egg then in the breadcrumbs, coating both sides with the crumbs. Place in an even layer in the baking dish.
