I've got a great new giveaway for you today! Once again, the folks at My Blog Spark have put together an amazing gift pack including some great items that any cook could use in their kitchen. This time the gift pack includes Progresso panko, a carton of Progresso broth, a measuring cup, slotted spoon, soup ladle, a small sheet pan and a Progresso soup mini magazine including some really inspired recipes from Michael Chiarello.
Progresso broths are 100% natural and use high quality ingredients to achieve a great homemade taste. They are fat free, gluten free, contain no preservatives, no added MSG and no artificial flavors. Progresso broth is available in chicken and reduced sodium chicken and beef flavors.
Chef Michael Chiarello appears daily on the Food Network and can also be seen on Top Chef Masters. In addition, he runs and owns Bottega Restaurant in Napa Valley, CA. Below are just a few of Chef Chiarello´s tips to help you create quick, flavorful meals you and your family will enjoy.
* Breading 1-2-3: Panko adds the perfect light crunch to fish fillets, chicken breasts and pork chops. Dip in flour, then beaten egg and coat both sides in Panko before frying or baking
* Faux Fried: Instead of frying, bake Panko-coated chicken in a 400F oven for 20 minutes to get the same crispy crunch without the fat
* Give New Life to Leftovers: Time in the fridge can steal moisture and flavor; drizzle a little broth over last night´s pasta or casserole before reheating
* Better than H20: Water adds moisture, not flavor; replace water with broth when you cook potatoes, rice and grains
To enter the giveaway all you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me how you use panko and/or broth! Don't forget to leave a way for me to contact you, in case you're the lucky winner! US residents only, please!
The giveaway ends on Wednesday 11/4/2009 at 12:00 Noon EST. At that time I will randomly pick a winner and will announce it here!
