{Recipe} Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Nothing says Monday like a healthy Chicken recipe. Yaaaaay chicken! Has anyone actually ever said that? Well, I know I haven't. However, I know I need more protein in my diet & chicken can be an easy go-to during the week.  I was on the hunt for a new recipe since I was attempting the Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts for a 2nd time.  I turned to my friend Sarah to see if she had any recipes for me to try & I was in luck. She had me at the word Parmesan.  Any time I can add cheese to a recipe, I'm pretty down to try it.  This chicken was actually really good & easy to make! It was tender, juicy & actually had some flavor.  I will definitely be adding this recipe to our chicken rotation. Thank you Sarah for the idea!

Serves: 4
Cook time: approx. 30 mins
How difficult was this for me? Pretty easy!

4 boneless chicken breasts, halved
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp thyme leaves, chopped
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
3/4 cup parmesan cheese
3/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
Kosher salt


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cover baking sheet in tinfoil & spray with cooking spray.

Mix Dijon mustard, thyme, cayenne, and 1/2 tsp salt in medium bowl.
Place chicken one piece at a time in bowl & coat w/ mix. Set aside.
In a shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs & parmesan cheese.
Dredge chicken in breadcrumb mix & coat evenly & heavily.
Place chicken on baking sheet & bake for 15-20 mins, until no longer pink. I sliced into one piece just to make sure.
Let sit about 5 mins then serve!
