Crispy Panko Chicken With Apricot Dipping Sauce

Panko Chicken with Dipping Sauce 1 sm

These crispy panko-battered and fried chicken strips are delicious as a snack, starter, or as part of a main course meal.  Panko breadcrumbs originated in Japan and form the perfect coating for this chicken (and many other meats and fish as well).  Panko breadcrumbs have a crisper and more airy texture than other breadcrumbs.  They resist absorbing oil when fried, resulting in a lighter coating.

Quick and easy to make, this is a recipe you’ll return to again and again.  Kid-friendly and kid-approved (my 3 and 1 year old).
