Progresso sent me a box of their new Lemon Pepper Panko, and I decided to use it for pan-fried chicken.
I had 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts that I pound to an even thickness, then cut into about 3 pieces each. I then dipped each piece into flour (seasoned with salt and pepper), a beaten egg, and then a mixture of about 3/4 c Panko, 1/4 c grated Parm, and a bit of cayenne pepper.
I heated about 2 T of oil in the skillet, then pan-fried the chicken for about 4-5 minutes per side, until cooked through. Typically when I do any type of "fried" food, I bake it. But I have to say it is so much juicier and seems to retain so much for flavor when it's cooked this way. I love the flavor of the panko - it had just a hint of lemon, but it wasn't overwhelming. J is not a fan of lemon, but he liked this!
Now Progresso and My Blog Spark are allowing me to send one lucky reader a free box of Lemon Pepper Panko. And that's not all! Included with the Panko, you will receive an autographed copy of Michael Chiarello's new cookbook, Michael Chiarello's Bottega.
