Dinner
 
Right, you arty farty showy-off creative bunch of cooks, what did you have for dinner last night?

I had chicken breasts covered in panko bread crumbs, baby corn, green beans, broccoli and wedges of onion....healthiest dinner in a long time and not too dull. Then some festive friends for pud pud.

What a guy.

They're just breadcrumbs. An idea belonging to the good lady, just makes a chicken breast less dull :thumbup:

A sandwich.... made at home.

Prawns and strips of smoked salmon tossed in my own tangy rose sauce (mayo, jalapeno tommy sauce, lemon juice, cayenne pepper) with rocket and a spread of gherkin relish.

Served up with salt and vinegar discos....

Fit for a king!

Spinach salad with one diced egg and a bit of a olive oil / balsamic vinegar dressing.

Oddly enough I used them for the first time a couple of nights ago. Was fashioning a chicken cordon bleu for him indoors & these seemed to breadcrumb well after toasting first.

Tonight it is flippin' well freezing here so sausage and mash with onion gravy.

I see he has stashed a Crunchie bar in the fridge for laters.

They are much drier & flakier than normal bread crumbs. Gives a much better crunch. We prefer them over normal bread crumbs aswell.

They stay crispy for a long time too.

How did you get the crumbs to stick and how did you cook the chicken?

Apart from the prawn and salmon, that sounds incredible. Discos! What a guy.

Dipped in egg then in the breadcrumbs.
Cooked on greased tray in the oven. Underneath crumbs are not crispy obviously, guess you could turn it or grill first or something but can't really be bothered....

I normally mix Panko crumbs with normal breadcrumbs, to get a better coating (for Chicken Kiev, Chicken escalopes etc).

Last night was another bowl of my Jambalaya, I have enough left tonight, I must get to Spinneys.

I shallow fry, turning a couple of times to ensure they're evenly cooked and a nice golden colour

Good tip. Thanks

Again, good tip. Idea was to have a healthier dinner so frying wasn't top of the list but in future I'll definitely give it a go. :thumbsup:

I had steamed chicken in a large Yorkshire pudding (frozen), with mash (frozen), stuffing (dried), peas (tinned) and gravy (granules).

Yes, I feel ashamed.
