    I wouldn’t know what Panko is and I wouldn’t say I’m the best cook, but I do cook every night.

    Panko sounds more elegant.  Breaded sounds a bit ordinary. 

    Yum, panko breaded chicken!

    I had to look it up on the wikipedia. I think i’d just say “breaded chicken”. I know that I am a very picky eater and I get suspicious of things with strange names I dont recognize.

    I think there is a big difference in taste between Bread-Crumb Breaded Chicken and Panko-breaded chicken. I wouldn’t be inclined to eat the first, I am a big fan of the second.

    panko sounds better to me. when i think breaded chicken breast, i’m thinking a heavy type of breading. panko is very light and yummy!

    I’ve never heard of Panko before and, as a guest, would like to be able to look up what that would refer to before making my selection.

    I agree that Panko makes it sound yummier to me. I DO know what Panko is, and that would probably sway my decision. A Panko breaded chicken breast sounds more appetizing to me than a breaded chicken breast. Yum…can I come to your wedding??

    Seriously! I can’t believe people don’t know what panko is. Panko crusted shrimp anyone? 🙂 I always have it on hand… it’s the flakiest & yummiest bread crumbs around!

    I vote that you write Panko Breaded Chicken Breast!

    Panko breading gives chicken the consistency of fried chicken without having to fry it.  It’s crispier than breaded chicken.  I would use “panko breaded” so the guests know it will be crispy, not soft.

    I’ll add that after looking up what Panko is, I would likely choose a different entree option for myself if I was a guest at your wedding.  This further enforces to me that you ought to state Panko, because I love breaded chicken and if you just said that and I got Panko, I’d probably be disappointed.

    I know what Panko is and I think that it makes a big enough difference in the taste of the food that you’d want to include specifics. Panko and bread crumbs taste very different and have very different textures!

    I probably wouldn’t pick breaded chicken breast but might choose Panko breaded chicken (because I know what it is and know that it’s yummy). For those who don’t know, it won’t matter (they can ignore it or look it up if curious). For those who DO know, it may make a difference in their selection.

    I say include it! I love panko! When I hear just breaded, I think of flour / fried breading, versus the delicious crispiness of panko. People can always google before they send in their RSVP right?
