Well, friends, here it is, my first cooking show webisode. Crispy Baked Panko Chicken. Mmmm. As I say in the video, this is one of my favorite recipes, not only to make, but for everyone I cook for. It’s the kind of recipe that people get addicted to. Seriously. Before I filmed this back in November, I had the producer and director over for a demo meal and this chicken is what I fed to them (along with a couple other things). A few days later I get a call from the producer. I answer the phone and she says: “DAVE. I can’t stop thinking about that f*****g chicken!” I’m telling you, it’s the real deal.

As promised, here’s the recipe:
Crispy Baked Panko Chicken (Recipe PDF)

A few small notes from my video. First, since our budget was so low I used the aluminum pans I had sitting in my cabinet that I bought for Thanksgiving to mariante the chicken. It definitely works, but if you have a heavy duty plastic container with a lid, that will work even better and in fact is probably way easier to handle. Also, you should plan on 50-55 minutes for the chicken, not 45. This is all reflected in the recipe PDF.

Now you may be asking why I decided to make this. Well, first and foremost: because I wanted to. I found myself watching Food Network saying “I could totally do this”. Rather than just sitting around hoping Food Network would suddenly call me, I decided I needed to take action. Through friends of friends I found a producer/director team that was making cooking shows, so I pitched my idea and they went for it. We actually made a handful of episodes, so depending on how this one is received, I may be releasing more in the near future. It’s by no means a perfect product, but I think it’s a damn good start. Fingers crossed a big production company will take notice and scoop me up. Or perhaps just a nice tall man….

With that, hope you enjoy both the recipe and the video. Feedback is definitely welcome. Happy Friday!!

Well done. Nice work. I like your style. Can I suggest turning the chicken on the plate around at the end so we can see a close up where you sliced into the chicken. For future ones!
