  1. Hi Alyssa,
    In the recipe for Crispy Parmesan Garlic Chicken, you state to use “2 cups of Panco”
    I live in Ireland and have never come across PANCO before,
    what is it or more importantly what can I substitute it with?

    Great recipes, keep it up!


    1. PANCO are bread crumbs. If you have anything similar to that, that would be great! Panco is a brand here in America. You can always just use flour if you don’t like that texture. Hope that helps! Thanks so much for following along with me from Ireland!! XOXO

    I made this last night and it was delicious! I have never tried the oven baking method before but will definitely try it again in the future.

  3. Panko are light, flakey breadcrumbs made from white bread only (no crusts). Regular breadcrumbs and be substituted. (They are not a ‘brand’ but a style of breadcrumbs that originated in Japan.)

  4. 5 stars
    Chicken was truly delicious, and veggies perfectly cooked. But……………the amounts of panko and parmesan cheese called for in the recipe were way way way too much! Four cups for 4 chicken breasts? Crazy. I made 4 boneless chicken breasts (2.33 lbs.) and I threw out most of the bread crumbs and valuable shredded cheese. Will definitely make it again but use much less breadcrumbs and cheese.

    1. I put half parmesan bread crumbs mix in a baggie or separate bowl and toss potatoes & veggies in it. Delicious!!! Family requests often. Also good with Ranch Dry Mix added!

    2. Alice I totally agree, way too much panic and part. I thought it was a lot but only after dredging the chicken did I realize I was going to throw away 3/4 of the mix, very wasteful. Dinner is in the oven now, hoping it will taste good. Perhaps the recipe could be adjusted to reflect setting aside 1/2-3/4 of the panko/parm mixture for later or veggies before raw chicken is dreaded.

    3. Mine is in the oven right now but I agree! It didn’t even occur to me how much it was until I started coating first chicken breast – by then it had raw stuff in it so wasn’t comfortable saving it for something else. One cup of each would’ve been plenty, and when I watched the video that’s how much it seemed she was using. Just dumped valuable ingredients. 🙁 Hope it is good!

  5. I used broccoli instead of asparagus and Asiago cheese in lieu of parm. This is delicious and I love how it gets crisp.

    I tried this recipe for the first time this evening. It was delicious! It didn’t take long to prepare & I had all the necessary ingredients on hand. I will be adding it to my recipe rotation.

  7. This came out really good! I agree with previous reviews and the panko, Parmesan, eggs & milk could be cut in half. I threw a lot of ingredients out because there was just too much left over. Great meal, though! Will definitely make again!

  8. 4 stars
    I would definitely do only about 3/4 cup each of panko and parmesan. i might have cut my red skin potatoes too large but they needed about 50 minutes to roast at 425. the asparagus i used was very thick and was perfectly done at the same time as the chicken, after 40 minutes (20 for each side of the chicken breasts). it was a delicious recipe but i wish i had done a few things differently! would definitely make the chicken again, a lemon garlic cream sauce would be delicious with this.

    I used bone-in chicken thighs – we just don’t eat that dry white stuff anymore – and they were juicy and crisp in the same time frames. This was very good, although I think I need about half the panko coating. Maybe because chicken thighs are more compact than chicken breasts. And, the potatoes and asparagus were GREAT! Thanks for an easy and very good weeknight dinner.

  10. I made this tonight and it was delicious but the chicken definitely needed longer than 12-15 minutes per side. I had 4 boneless chicken breast, 2.5 lbs total, and I think I had to cook for a total of 50 minutes. Would you recommend cutting the breasts in half, and then cooking for 12-15 per side? Or do you think that may interfere with the other items cooking sufficiently?

    This was DELICIOUS! But, like others stated – way to much bread crumb/parm mixture left over. We did toss the asparagus in the mixture as well – which was yummy. Next time we will do the potatoes as well. It did take longer for our chicken to cook – we needed 45 minutes roasting time. Will definitely keep this recipe handy – as it was easy and very flavorful! Thank you.

  12. Making this right now and I agree, the Panko/cheese mixture was too much for this recipe. Also, you didn’t specify Finely Shredded Cheese and I used the large cut shredded cheese, so it looked noting like your plate. I will make it again, only I will buy the finely shredded cheese.

  13. I was looking for the nutritional value of this meal and it was extremely high. Is that a mistake? Even if I were to divide this serving into for it still is a supper of around 900 cal and 30 g of fat that’s hard to believe for Chicken asparagus and potatoes.

    1. I am getting nutritional information for each recipe right now while I am updating my old recipes. In the meantime, you are welcome to use to help find the information you are needing.

  14. If you use fresh green beans instead of asparagus, would you leave them whole or cut in thirds like the asparagus? Thank you

  15. My loves this recipe! I made green beans instead of asparagus because my daughter isn’t a fan …

    Also the recipe calls for way to much bread crumbs. I threw away half!

  16. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It is so good. I made potato wedges and coated them the same way as the chicken. They were good. I didn’t realize I didn’t have parmesan so I made it without cheese and when it was done added a little mozzarella and melted it. We all loved it.

  17. 5 stars
    This was delicious and simple! I made less of the panko and cheese mix based on comments and because I only cooked 3 breast pieces, they were huge! Easy prep, simple clean up and delicious! Winner!

  18. I’ve made this recipe twice now and all I can say is WOW! This time I double dipped the chicken in the egg and breading and it turned out great. Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe! 🙂

  19. You can take the extra panko cheese mixture , add 2 more beaten eggs, 1/2 tspn baking powder and the balance of leftover egg mixture and blend together thoroughly. Chill 30 minutes. Bring pot of water to a boil. Make 1 inch balls with a sherbert scoop and put the balks into the water. Tirn down to a simmer. Simmer for 30 minutes. Use like a matzo ball or dumpling in vegetable soup or fry in a bit of olive oil butter combination as a side dish. Freezes well.

    Just made this meal prep style for the week! Did roughly 4.4oz of chicken with 2oz of potatoes and 2oz of aspargus. Tastes really good however I do agree that the recipe calls for way to much of the panko mixture
