Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cover a 15x10x1 baking sheet with foil. Spray foil with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine bread crumbs, crushed pecans, Parmesan cheese, paprika and black pepper; mix well. Whisk eggs with water. Dip chicken pieces into egg mixture, then roll in bread crumb mixture. Put chicken pieces on prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.

What is the "egg mixture" mentioned in the directions? I didn't see "egg" on the ingredients.
