In an experiment to try the lighter side of chicken nuggets we used Progresso’s panko, a flaky bread crumb which adds a light crispiness to your food. The end result, crispy chicken nuggets without all of the added weight of traditional bread crumbs.

  1. Looks yummy. I would add some parmesan cheese with the breadcrumbs…. I’m obsessed with cheese :)

  2. We use Panko breadcrums for chicken fairly often in our house. It’s so yum! We usually add some shredded parmesan and a (teeny) dash of cayenne pepper, too.

  3. Panko is my favorite. It makes everything taste awesome. I love it on chicken amd porkchops. YUMMY! I have never used it to bake with, I always use it when I am frying but baking is so much healthier. As soon as my oven gets fixed I will have to use it for baking. Thanks for the idea.

  4. Yummy!
