I opened up my refrigerator and it was basically empty. We are going on vacation soon so I’ve been trying to scale back on the amount of food we’ve been buying but that’s left us with fewer choices. So I had chicken to work with and that’s about it! I gathered up all of my available ingredients and decided to make a meal out of it Masterchef Mystery Box style. AKA just winging it. And…it worked!
I made a breaded Dijon Mustard Chicken and it was great! And better yet it was sooo easy and cheap to make. I REALLY like that combo haha. We made it with plain white rice and a little bit of BBQ sauce drizzled on top and it was delicious!
Who said for a good meal you have to go all out and make something super fancy? I never have. But hey, I’m more practical New Englander than Hipster Brooklynite anyways 😉
Dijon Mustard Chicken
- 4 Skinless Boneless Chicken Breasts
- 1 Cup Flour
- 1/2 Cup Dijon Mustard
- 2 Cups Panko Bread Crumbs
- 2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
- White Rice
- BBQ Sauce
Pat dry chicken breasts and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Cover chicken breasts with flour and press flour into crevices (Tip: It's easiest to have flour, mustard and bread crumbs on separate plates for easy access).
Brush mustard onto floured chicken, then press on breadcrumbs.
Heat oil in a large frying pan on a medium-high setting. Place chicken in pan and cook until bread crumbs are golden brown. Flip chicken and cook until completely cooked through. Transfer to either a wire rack or plate covered with paper towels to drain excess oil. The Enjoy!
