Lemon Pepper Chicken

I recently received a box of Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko Bread Crumbs from General Mills through MyBlogSpark. I had been wanting to try panko bread crumbs for awhile, because they seem to be fairly popular these days and I had been hearing about them A LOT! I decided to just go with the recipe that was on the back of the box, but substitute chicken for fish. It was AWESOME. Really easy and so tasty!

Here's the recipe:

2 tbsp flour
1 egg, beaten
1 cup Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko
3 chicken breasts

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray baking dish.

2. Place flour, egg and bread crumbs in separate plates.

3. Coat chicken with flour, dip in egg, coat well with bread crumbs.
4. Bake chicken for 20-30 minutes until thickest park of chicken is 165 degrees.

You could substitute pork or fish for the chicken.

I was also provided with Chef Michael Chiarello's latest cookbook: Michael Chiarello's Bottega.
While many of the recipes in the book do not fit with the style of food I normally cook, it is a beautiful book and did inspire me to branch out a bit and try something new! MyBlogSpark has provided me with a copy to give away to one of my lucky readers! Just leave a comment with your full name and e-mail address and the winner will be chosen and contacted via e-mail on 11/29!

In the meantime, you may want to print a coupon for $1 off any panko flavor or view some tips for cooking with panko.

Happy cooking and good luck!!
