A couple months ago (why, yes, I am just THAT on the ball *ahem*), Progresso, through the folks at MyBlogSpark, sent me a lovely little package containing a box of Progresso Lemon Panko breadcrumbs and an autographed copy of Chef Michael Chiarello's latest cookbook, "Michael Chiarello's Botega." Since I menu plan one month at a time and I had recently written out a plan, I promptly tucked these things in my pantry and kind of forgot about them.
Now... I had certainly heard of panko breadcrumbs before. But, can I tell you the truth? I had never purchased them. I almost always just make my own breadcrumbs out of stale, dry bread that we accumulate around here.
What a fun treat! And, I must say, I loved the crunch and texture that the panko gave to my breaded chicken cutlets. I felt like less of the crunchiness came from the frying and more was a result of the breadcrumbs. Delicious!
To be completely honest with you all, I must admit that, while I have perused Chef Chiarello's cookbook (and salivated over the delicious Italian yumminess therein), I have not made any of the recipes as of yet. Why not? Truthfully, I'm just not much of a "recipe girl". I cook on the fly a lot. But, trust me, there are dozens of things in there that I would happily eat!
