Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko and Chef Michael Chiarello Giveaway

Giveaway has closed.  I always wanted to know the secret of how restaurants cooked their chicken and fish with the crispy flavorful coating.  I have tried other types of bread crumbs but would not get the effect I was trying to achieve.  Thanks to General Mills through MyBlogSpark I now have the secret and you can to.

Panko is Japan’s secret ingredient for crunch. A flaky bread crumb with a coarse texture and jagged edges, panko imparts a delicate crispiness perfect for frying or baking. For nearly a decade, panko has been popping up on the plates of fine dining restaurants. but for the home chef, panko has been difficult to find. Not anymore. Progresso Foods introduces its newest gourmet bread crumb, panko, in three flavors: plain, Italian and lemon pepper.


Since we love pork scaloppine I decided to try the recipe for the Parmesan Herb-Crusted Turkey Scaloppine  I changed it up a bit to use the Lemon Pepper Panko.  It was a good choice.  The lemon pepper made the taste pop and was a big hit with everyone.

Panko not only makes a good crispy coating for chicken and fish, but it is great to use as a topping on soups, macaroni and cheese, salads, or anything else you can think of to top.  Check out some of the ways you can use Panko at progressofoods.com along with some great tips from Chef Chiarello.  Michael Chiarello is an award‐winning chef, Emmy‐winning Food Network host, tastemaker behind the NapaStyle retail company, highly rated vintner, and noted cookbook author.  To learn more about Chef Michael Chiarello check out his website.

Visit the Progresso website for additional recipes, tips for cooking with panko, video and a coupon for $1 off any panko flavor.

I like the fact that it is mentioned about Versatile Veggies. I have a nephew who hates veggies. If I were to bread them perhaps he might think they taste like chicken fingers.

I've honestly never used Panko or really even heard much about it, but I'm interested in trying it! I like the idea of putting it on lasagna with Parmesan Cheese and parsley mixed with it Thanks!

I use Panko Bread Crumbs when I make Chicken Fingers. I dip the chicken in egg, then panko bread crumbs. Then just cook them in olive oil on the stove. Delicious!

Favorite tip:
Spice It Up:
Mix plain Panko with any flavor that tantalizes your taste buds. I keep some Gremolata around to boost the flavor of pasta, add zest and crunch to soups and make my salads snappy. Its as simple as equal parts chopped parsley, panko and pinenuts.

I like to use them for chicken nuggets! Dip chicken in flour, egg and then coat chickens tenders with Panko — skip the deep fryer — and bake to perfection that will tempt taste buds of any age.

mmmm
For example, add chopped to pecans to your Panko for some deep Southern flavor in Panko Pecan-Crusted Chicken or Fish.

My favorite tip, from the website, is adding chopped up nuts to the Panko to give it a nice nutty southern flavor.
