Lemon Panko Chicken

lemon panko chicken on arugula

It has been a bit quiet here at Adventures in the Kitchen.  I recently went through a transition from my job.  I am excited and dreaming about what the future holds.  With Easter this week I have a few recipes to share this week that might be a good addition to your meal.

This Lemon Panko Chicken was a nice surprise.  I love the tangy crunch and think kids will like it too.  Lemons say spring and add a brightness and new twist to the recipe.  I served this on a bed of arugula tossed with a lemon vinaigrette.

This weekend I held my first Adventures In the Kitchen for kids cooking class in a long time.  It was so much fun. Here is a little teaser. Stay tuned for a post showing all the fun we had.

    Just found your recipe online and made it this evening. So delicious, thanks! I ended up butterflying it, stuffing it with mozzarella and baking it on parchment paper. Amazing with all your other flavours! :)
