Spicy Panko Crusted Chicken Strips

Spicy Panko Crusted Chicken Strips by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

Hello and welcome to yet another new look for my site. I have been endlessly searching for about 6 months for a more professional looking theme that I could customize. I had all but given up, and had just about given in to just buying a theme. Then I came across a new free theme from Geek Design Girl. I have been working on custimizing the theme quite a bit, so it doesn’t look like the original very much, but it still has all the great features that I love about the theme design. I am still working on tweaking the theme so I have all the features of my old theme, and maybe some new things too. If you see any problems or dead links, let me know. I also know some of you have been having problems with the comment section of my blog. The reason is because I am on a shared server. I am switching to another type of server in the next month to hopefully correct this problem.

I want to invite you today to visit Champions Against Hunger. There you can read inspirational stories and vote for your favorite. For each vote received, Share our Strength will receive a $1 donation from ConAgra Foods to help end childhood hunger. The campaign is going on until march 19, so be sure to go ahead and visit today.

I have recently fallen in love with panko crusted anything. I saw this recipe, at Kathy’s site, Are You Hungry. She is a great cook and her site is full of wonderful recipes. This recipe is a little different than her’s. I tried to get a really thick coating, so instead of just dipping the chicken in hot sauce first, I added milk. Combining the milk with the hot sauce makes a spicy buttermilk marinade from the vinegar in the hot sauce. I then added my own seasonings to plain crumbs because I did not have any Italian panko crumbs. The result was a super crispy spicy breading on the chicken. It was amazing to say the least.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 -3 teaspoons Tabasco sauce
  • 1 cup plain panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine milk and Tabasco sauce in a bowl. The vinegar in the Tabasco sauce will make the milk into a thick buttermilk. Add chicken and let sit for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Combine bread crumbs and dry seasonings in a bowl. Bread chicken. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Sprinkle extra crumbs on top of chicken. Bake chicken for 30-45 minutes, or until chicken is firm, browned, and has an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

    I love your new look! Very nice. And of course, panko coated chicken is always wonderful too. I love Kathy. She’s been a faithful visitor/commenter on both of my blogs for a long time and is just such a sweetheart.

    My favorite WP theme is Thesis. Very good for those who know what to do with it and how to customize things.

    I’m not so code-savvy, but I think I found a good color combination nowadays and I’ll be sticking to it.

    Hey Angie, thank you so much for the mention. I’m glad you like the recipe. I’ll have to try using milk, hubby likes the thicker crust too. I have to tell you, that chicken photo is great. To think, my son is a photographer and my photos couldn’t s_ck enough! He always tells me to use his camera, gives me instruction, which I can’t ever remember… Add to that I always cook late, and it’s too dark in my kitchen to get a decent shot. I’m just too scared ;) Like the new theme, light and airy. A great backdrop for your photos.

    It is nearly impossible to find educated people in this particular subject,
    but you seem like you know what you’re talking about!
