Panko Rocks

Thanks to Karen, I've been using panko at least twice a week now. Tonight, I made a cocoa-orange glaze (no recipe - surprise, surprise!) which I drizzled over panko and parmesan encrusted oven-fried chicken breasts. Yum. Sorry, no pics. But, let me just say that if you haven't tried panko (Japanese bread crumbs), you must. Really. Light, crunchy goodness. If you aren't sure where to find it/them, check Trader Joe's. That's where I get my panko on. It's also where I get my tamari roasted almonds - a snack food that I recommend highly. Great with a glass o' red wine. And, while I'm on the recommending rant, try a glass of La Crema Pinot Noir with those almonds. Divine.
