I love using Panko Crumbs! They make chicken crispy without having to go through all the dredging with egg and flour. Just brush a little oil or even better mustard onto chicken breasts then coat them in panko, and you are ready to cook them however you wish!

I substitute broth for water in a lot of my recipes...the broth just adds so much flavor. Also, tonight I'm making chicken tenders dipped in ranch dressing and coated in Progresso's Italian Breadcrumbs...it's tasty and super easy!!

Thanks for the chance!!

My best tip for entertaining is to clean the guest bath, hang white towels for just such an ocassion, close all the bedroom doors, turn down the lights and light a candle.

Things look and smell good when you do. And if they don't look so good, no one can tell with the doors closed and the lights turned down :)

I make it easier by starting days sometimes weeks before in getting things ready. Sometimes I make pies and freeze them ahead of time. I use panko for breading on chicken and pork chops. I use chicken broth as a substitution in several recipes, where it calls for milk, water. I use it in mashed potatoes.

Interestingly enough I use panko to make cutlets, then I cook them in broth for ten minutes. How soft and delicious they are because the bread softens.
