1 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon or basil
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
2 chicken breast halves, skinless & boneless
salt and pepper
chopped fresh parsley


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly spray baking pan large enough to hold the chicken breast halves.

Whisk together mustard, olive oil, garlic and tarragon in small bowl. Place breadcrumbs in pie pan.

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Spread mustard mixture over both sides of chicken. Dip chicken into breadcrumbs, turning to coat completely.

Place chicken on baking sheet. Bake about 10 minutes on one side, turn and bake another 5 minutes, or until cooked through and juices run clear. If chicken browns too quickly, cover lightly with aluminum foil.

Transfer to plates and garnish with parsley.

The coating on the chicken just melts in your mouth! I baked as directed then added a little extra parm to the tops during the last 10 minutes of cooking. SOOOO good!

Make sure to really press the breadcrumbs on so you get a good coating because the crust is delicious. I actually marinate the chicken with the mustard spread on it all day then come home and add the breadcrumbs and cook it. Very easy and we really enjoy the recipe.

This was absolutely wonderful....I used basil and they were juicy and tasted great. I do not like to cook and husband needs diabetic meal so this looked simple....and it was! We will definitely have it again. I did not use any salt or pepper since he also has high blood pressure.

My favorite chicken recipe, I make only a few slight changes- first, omit the garlic, increase the tarragon, and substitute panko for normal breadcrumbs. I also usually make this recipe with chicken thighs instead of breasts but it will work either way. Happy cooking!
