Panko Chicken with broiled marinated Zucchini and fried Potatoes

Panko Chicken with broiled marinated Zucchini and fried Potatoes.

If your not familiar with Panko, you really need to try it. It makes the best crunchy coating when baking any kind of meat. It's completely different from regular bread crumbs.

First you need a liquid to dip the chicken in so the crumbs will stick better. I usually use Egg Beaters, but I've also used fat free dressings like Italian or Ranch. I've even used Miracle whip. So just about anything you like. Now I add seasoning to the crumbs for more flavor. I use Mrs Dash and garlic powder and Parmesan cheese.
Dip the chicken in liquid, roll in crumbs, and place in a greased pan. I foil the pan for easy clean-up afterwards. Spray with spray butter, for better browning . Bake at 375 for 40 minutes, or until juices run clear.

Slice the zucchini lengthwise and place in a zip-lock bag. Add 1/4 cup oil, 1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar, and a teaspoon of Oregano. Marinate for 30 minutes. Broil for 20-30 minutes, turning once until tender and browned on edges. We like a little Parmesan cheese sprinkled when served.
Slice potatoes 1/4 inch thick. Arrange in a frying pan coated with cooking oil. Sprinkle with Paprika, and a little garlic, and Cook on medium turning frequently until browned and crispy.
And there you have it! A tasty dinner!
