I had been given notice from the folks at Pssst… that an exciting new chef recommended ingredient was on the way to me, so I was thrilled when I opened the mystery package to discover that the folks from General Mills had sent me Progresso's new Panko Bread Crumb product to try.
I have been wanting to try panko forever, but it has been next to impossible to find around here. The place where I usually shop for groceries did not carry any type of panko product, and I kept forgetting to check the other stores where I occasionally shop. Imagine my surprise when I opened the package to discover not only panko bread crumbs, but from a product name that I love, Progresso! I couldn't wait to try them.
Besides using the panko as a topping on my Green Bean Casserole with Panko Crumb Topping and my Broccoli & Cheese Casserole, I also decided to use some of the bone-in chicken breasts from my last Angel Food Ministries box and make Crispy Panko Coated Ranch Chicken. Nothin' could be easier than this y'all - FOUR ingredients. Yep, that's it. Just FOUR - chicken, mayonnaise, ranch seasoning mix and Progresso Panko Bread Crumbs. The mayonnaise helps to retain the juiciness of the chicken, and the panko provides a wonderful crunch.
Wow, was this super easy! There's plenty of flavor in the ranch dressing and I absolutely LOVED the crunch from the panko - super crunchy. Panko bread crumbs are jagged edged and flaky so that they remain crisp whether they are used in frying or baking and now that they are a Progresso product, much easier to find! These will definitely be a pantry regular in my house now.
I have SIX coupons for $1.10 off a box of Progresso Panko Bread Crumbs to give away. When I checked the shelf at my Walmart, well, first there was exactly one box left on a shelf that had clearly been previously full of product - so that's a good sign, but since the box sold for $2.08, with this coupon you'll get to try the Progresso Panko Crispy Bread Crumbs, in your choice of either Plain or Italian style, for only about 98 cents (depending on the cost in your area)! Can't beat that.
