NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme leaves, chopped
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 8 ounces each)
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup panko or dried coarse baguette breadcrumbs
  • Cooking spray
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

  • Mix the mustard, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the cayenne in a medium bowl. Add the chicken breasts and turn to coat completely; set aside.

  • In a medium shallow bowl, combine the parmesan and panko. Dredge the chicken pieces in the panko mixture, coating evenly and heavily, and pressing the coating into the meat.

  • Put the chicken on a rack set over a baking sheet, spray with a quick burst of cooking spray and put the sheet in the middle of the oven. Bake until the chicken is golden and cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes before cutting or serving.
