It probably goes without saying that I spend a whole lot of time searching around for great recipes to share with y’all. I try to avoid any recipe that is too popular because a.) I want to have original recipes and b.) I do not want to step on my fellow food bloggers toes and hijack their hard work.
The problem is, I am missing out on some super duper recipes! So what’s a food blogger to do? My head says no but my tummy says yes…and my tummy always wins. I’ll always link it back to the original author. I just thought it would be fun to try some of these very popular recipes!
A lot of the recipes I love seem to include Panko Crumbs. I do have a small obsession with them. See Panko Crusted Salmon and Perfectly Baked Fish Sticks posts just to name a few. I like to pre brown the crumbs in a hot skillet before using. It isn’t completely necessary, but if you have ever had white crumbs on what is supposed to be golden brown crusted something, then you might want to give it a whirl. Just heat up a dry non stick skillet over medium high heat. Toss in the Panko crumbs and stir them around for about 5 minutes until they get a very light brown. Careful not to over brown, they still have to go in the oven, you are just giving them a head start!
It is no wonder this chicken dish is so popular! It is one of the best chicken recipes I have made and I make a whole lot of chicken recipes! Mr. Spatula ate two servings then finished off my last two bites. I made a big batch so leftovers are in my future!
No special instructions – comes together easily. I could see this served over rice or as an appetizer. Double the sauce recipe and use as dip! I’ll be risking it all and making this again and again!
