  5. Using a pie tin, beat egg and water to make an egg wash. Fill a second pie tin with breadcrumbs, salt and pepper and stir until well combined.
  6. Dip chicken into egg wash and then cover in breadcrumbs. Place breaded chicken on cookie sheet. Lightly spray chicken with cooking spray and bake for 25 minutes.
  7. Serve with remaining broccoli and mashed cauliflower.
