Lemon Pepper Chicken Cakes & a Giveaway!

Lemon Pepper Chicken Cakes

Chicken cakes?  Think crab cakes, but with chicken.  Moist, delicious patties filled with flavor for a creative way to prepare chicken.  Form into mini patties and they would make great little appetizers.  The wonderful lemon flavor comes from the new Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko Crispy Bread Crumbs.  I was surprised at the intense lemon flavor; I usually find flavored bread crumbs to be a little dull.  Not so with Progresso, the newest staple in my pantry.  I am thinking lemon pepper chicken strips and lemon pepper halibut have a place at my table in the near future.  There are endless possibilities to the combinations for these bread crumbs.  I received a box of bread crumbs to try along with an autographed copy of Michael Chiarello’s Bottega! Products and information was provided from General Mills through MyBlogSpark.  How cool is that!  Even cooler is that they are providing a gift pack for one of my lucky readers!!  Yeah, that’s right you could also have an autographed copy of  Bottega by the famous Michael Chiarello from Food Network and Top Chef Masters fame plus a box of Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko.
