Give Away…Cook like a chef!

I love finding little secrets that turn my ordinary cooking into fabulous chef like cuisine.  One of the big secrets that you will see on all of the cooking show is the use of panko crumbs.  They are used instead of regular breadcrumbs for frying, baking or breading.  They give your food an awesome crispiness that you can’t get from regular breadcrumbs.  They are larger and flakier than traditional crumbs and they give you a lighter and crunchier coating to your food.  Progresso has kicked it up a notch and even added flavors to their panko crumbs.  My favorite is the Lemon Pepper Panko – it is amazing on chicken breasts.  To see the magic yourself, and get a $1 coupon for your own box of breadcrumbs visit the Progresso site.  You will also find recipes from the world famous chef Michael Chiarello that include Progresso’s new panko flavors. Here is what he has to say about the new offerings..

“Panko has been a major part of some of my best crunchy dishes for years,” says Chef Chiarello. “It’s exciting to bring those dishes home, where some of the best dining memories are made. To me that’s what cooking is all about – sharing meals with your friends and family, and the memories you get to keep for a lifetime.”

  8. Lynne Knepper replied:

    I marinate my chicken breasts(cut into strips) in buttermilk, italian or ranch dressing; then roll in the bread crumbs. Melt 1/2 stick butter in pan, place strips in pan, bake at 400-425 for 20-25 min. Turn over half way through cooking-DELICIOUS!!!

    I love Panko breadcrumbs! Discovered them a few years ago and have been using them ever since. I use them for fish, pork and chicken. I pound chicken breasts or boneless pork chops with a meat mallet, then flour, dip in egg, then panko, then saute in olive oil. Same with fish. Yummy!!
