- • 2 cups panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
- • 4 tablespoons Olive and Then Some Milanese Gremolata Olive Oil

- Pour the panko mixture into a large plate or pie tin. Hang onto the bowl for the wine-mustard mixture.
- Using the same bowl, whisk together the ½ cup of Dijon mustard and the ½ cup of white wine. This will be your "batter" for the chicken pieces
- Pat the chicken pieces dry with paper towels and generously salt and pepper each piece. Prepare a separate baking pan with brushed EVOO or cooking spray.
- Dip each chicken piece into the mustard-wine mixture to coat all sides.
- Immediately place the coated chicken piece into the panko mixture skin side down, pressing gently so the crumbs adhere. You only need to coat the one side with the skin.
- Place coated chicken pieces onto prepared baking sheet with skin side up. Gently press the remaining panko mixture onto the chicken pieces. Note: If making ahead, wrap the baking sheet with plastic wrap and refrigerate. When ready, remove plastic wrap and bake according to the following directions.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- To serve, add the asparagus to the pan with the sauce and cook for an additional two minutes, being careful not to make mushy. Add the salmon chunks and cook to warm through, being careful not to break the chunks up. Ladle over drained pasta and serve garnished with dill and or flat leaf parsley.
