    Anyone ever try Panko bread crumbs? I just tried them on frying some chicken fingers and they turned out great! So easy I just sliced chicken breast lengthwise then dipped the pieces in flour, egg, then the Panko crumbs then fried in a cast iron skillet. Turned out just like a picture in a magazine! What are your recipes?

    I use panko all the time. I even skip the flour and just dip the cutlets in egg and then the panko. I use it on pork cutlets, veal and chicken. The trick is to pound the meat out thin, bread the cutlet and saute immediately in a hot mixture of olive oil and butter. No sauce is necessary. It should also work for shrimp and scallops.

    I use them all the time. I'm a chef. I get a 25# bag for like $17! Last time I saw them in the grocery store they were like $2.99 for 10 ounces.
    They are great for breading, but I also use them for a binder in meatloaf and meatballs, aa a topping for casseroles; I also toast them in garlic and butter until brown and top fresh pasta with them.

    I tried finding Panko bread crumbs a while back, needing them for one of Alton Brown's foodnetwork recipes. Never did find any - even in the 'ethnic' sections (aka Oriental, etc., specific items). Major chains here are Safeway and Albertsons, and Fry's, local chain is Bashas (the older stores are more of a glorified Circle K than anything).

    Any online sources for low or reasonable price for these w/decent shipping charges?

    I thought I'd look at amazon.com just for the heck of it. Found a nice looking product, less than $3 per bag but outragous shipping cost by comparison. Phoey.

    I wonder how these turn out:

    How/what to season them with, herb-wise or otherwise?
