Panko. The Secret to Oven Fried Success!

oven fried panko chickenAre you’re looking for a healthy alternative to traditional deep fried foods, but still want the crispy texture and the beautiful deep golden color? The secret is simple – use an Authentic Japanese Panko! Cracker meal, corn meal, standard breadcrumbs and even standard Panko will be dense, with a greasy texture in fried and oven-baked applications. Using Authentic Panko in oven fried recipes provides a healthier option to grease fried food, which is perfect for the summer months.  It’s very simple –  just mix olive oil into Authentic Panko until moist then add your favorite spices like Italian, Cajun red pepper or a ginger garlic and simply top crust your favorite firm fish or chicken and bake. Simple, easy and delicious.

If your Panko is hard & dense you’re not using an Authentic Panko.

All Panko products are not the same. The difference is substantial and the taste is amazing when using an Authentic Japanese Panko breadcrumb! A change as simple as switching from standard Panko to Authentic Panko is a deal changer and here’s why:

An authentic Panko is very light with a delicate texture – it’s never hard and dense like many standard popular brands of Panko.

The light airy texture provides more air pockets in each crumb giving you a light crispy texture not a hard crunchy taste.  When fried oil drains out of these air pockets leaving you with a less greasy coating that is light & crispy.

Additionally, because there is less oil your food items will stay crispy for a longer time. Great for takeout items!
