It seems as though panko breadcrumbs are all the rage right now and I wanted to see what all the hype was about.  I found an old recipe in Food and Wine and adapted it from a pretzel crusted chicken to panko.  The crust was nice and light and very crispy.  The recipe is also really fast and great for a weeknight.

Adapted from Food and Wine Magazine Pretzel-Crusted Chicken

1 cup panko breadcrumbs (approx.; use 1/2 cup at a time to reduce waste)

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup dijon mustard

1 Tbs. mayo

1/2 tsp. celery seed

1 1/2 Tbs. red wine vinegar

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1.5 pounds skinless boneless chicken breast (cut into strips)


1.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.   Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil and nonstick spray.  Combine the oil, mustard, mayo, celery seed, vinegar and blend.  Season the dressing with salt and pepper.  Pour 2-3 Tbs. of the dressing into a small bowl to reserve for dipping.  Add the chicken breasts and turn to coat.  Dredge the chicken into the panko crumbs; transfer to a foil-lines baking sheet.  

2.  Bake the chicken breasts in the upper third of the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until cooked through.  Serve with reserved sauce.

Btw, I found your post through a “chicken” tag because I recently posted a recipe for Prosciutto-Wrapped Rosemary Chicken and Garlic Mashed Potatoes on
    Thanks for the recipe!

  2. […] random visit to another food blog, The Missing Ingredient, reminded me that I’d been meaning to try panko at home.  The author of this blog adapted a […]
