Page came up under Passover options, Don't think Panko meets those requirements.

The recipe on the website, www.simply123allergyfree..., lists 2 to 3 teaspoons garlic powder.

An easy tasty alternative to deep fried chicken. Scaled this right down to feed two people using both chicken and fish, so didn't use any milk. The chicken released a lot of juices as it was baking so I flipped them over onto dry areas on the baking sheet about halfway through (35 mins was sufficient for the chicken, just 15 for the fish - paler crumb but then the meat wasn't overcooked). Dijon added a great flavour, will remember that in the future!

Panko's awesome. I did some fried tofu in it the other night. My veggie head loved it and posted it to twitter account.

So sorry I missed a step when typing in the recipe. Step 4 : Dip each piece of chicken first in the egg mixture and then roll in the panko crumbs. Arrange in a single layer in the baking dish. I will edit the recipe asap so it reads correctly. Thank you so much for catching my error. Best
