Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko Bread Crumb Giveaway from MyBlogSpark ends 11/28

Disclosure:  My prize pack, information and the prize package for giveaway were all provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.

The chef´s secret is out - panko is in! A longtime secret of Japanese cuisine, panko is now a pantry staple for creating perfect crispiness in any dish. This October, Lemon Pepper will join the ranks of Progresso´s line of panko bread crumbs, which includes Original and Italian flavors.

Whether frying, baking or broiling, this culinary superstar adds a flavorful crunch to create simple, savory recipes. Made from the soft, tender centers of the bread, Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko combines the perfect crunch with effortless flavor to give any dish that extra punch. The large, flaky crumb has a coarser texture than traditional bread crumbs, delivering a lighter, crunchier coating or topping.

A chef known for his emphasis on creating delicious dishes with fresh, premium ingredients, Chef Michael Chiarello uses panko as his go-to bread crumb for a crunch that won´t quit. An Emmy-award winning TV chef and cookbook author, Chef Chiarello is the tastemaker behind Bottega Napa Valley Restaurant, NapaStyle and Chiarello Family Vineyards, and appears on The Cooking Channel and Top Chef Masters only on Bravo.

Chef Chiarello is helping cooks everywhere use Progresso´s panko to make flavorful, flawless recipes including Crispy Seafood Salad, Mama Chiarello's Stuffed Eggplant and Turkey Scallopini and Squash Ravioli with Cranberry Brown Butter.

Visit the Progresso website for additional recipes, tips for cooking with panko, video and a coupon for $1 off any panko flavor.

"Panko has been a major part of some of my best crunchy dishes for years," says Chef Chiarello. "It´s exciting to bring those dishes home, where some of the best dining memories are made. To me that´s what cooking is all about - sharing meals with your friends and family, and the memories you get to keep for a lifetime."

Additionally, be sure to check out the Progresso's Wine & Dine with Chef Michael Chiarello Sweepstakes. Now through December 31st, participants can enter for the chance to win a trip for two to Napa Valley to attend the Spring Bud Break Party, an annual dinner and wine tasting event taking place on May 7, 2011.

  1. I have been craving shrimp lately so a breaded shrimp on a bed of rice sounds wonderful to me.

  2. Oh, my little Pixie, this is MY giveaway! I have LOVED Michael Chiarello from the Food Network when he had his "Napa Style" show on a few years ago! For my first entr: how would I use the Lemon Pepper Panko? Oh, I would definitely use it to bread some nice chicken cutlet and fry it up! PLUS, I'd love to be gifted with Michael's cookbook too, in addition to the Lemon Pepper Panko! Also: I have, so many times, purchased Progresso Bread Crumbs. Even if I don't win this, I will definitely purchase Progresso's Lemon Pepper Panko to try it and then blog about it. :)
    Thanks for the opportunity!
    Best regards,
