College Student Recipe Idea: Panko-Parmesan Chicken Fingers

IMG_2157

On Thursday evening, I am teaching a college cooking class, and I am preparing a recipe for Panko-Parmesan Crusted Chicken, a salad, an appetizer and a dessert. This is a great substitute for fried chicken, and it’s lower in fat while still crispy and delicious.¬†Panko breadcrumbs are Japanese-style breadcrumbs which are coarser in texture and provide a wonderful crunch and flavor to main dishes. They are usually found in a box in most grocery stores where breadcrumbs are sold.¬†

Appetizer or Entree: Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders

Since most kids and adults love chicken fingers, I thought I would try my hand at developing a low-fat yet delicious recipe that kids and adults would enjoy. This recipe is a cinch. It’s only 4 ingredients and takes less than 25 minutes to prepare. Make extra honey-mustard dipping sauce by stirring together Dijon mustard and honey. I love using panko breadcrumbs in this recipe, and they are so easy to find even in the grocery stores. Just check where breadcrumbs are sold. Enjoy as an appetizer or entree when you need something fast and tasty.
