This recipe was made up as I went along and the measurements are not exact. I tend to add a bit of this and that with a recipe, and this one is true to form! Inspiration came with the warm weather hitting New England and a full propane tank for the grill.
As many recipes are created, this one was a recipe inspired by another recipe. I was reading some cooking magazine where they added cooked cut up bacon to ground beef to make bacon burgers. I said to myself, what's better than bacon burgers? Well bacon cheeseburgers of course. This recipe is the base and can be doubled, tripled, etc. I usually do 4-5 lbs and freeze them all individually for later use.
I came up with this when I didn't have any butter to make garlic panko chicken strips to go with #51884 True Lemon Chicken sauce. Panko is a chunky style of breadcrumb from Japan, giving a nice crunchy finish.
I needed a recipe almost fat free. After marination, this would be fast and juicy that could be heaten up if need be. This is the recipe. Note: If you have large chicken breasts increase the Panko and spices. You could
double the breading recipe.
