I used chicken cutlets on the bone with skin on as the chicken breasts on sale were way to big (at about 350 to 450grams each) and the cutlets were at a good price. When I went to make them it was shock horror as I only had 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard so had to use dijonmayonnaise (Dijon mustard mixed with mayonnaise) and for the 6 cutlets I used more than a 1/4 cup worth as I smeared it on heavily (skin side only) and doubled the amount of crumb mix and most of it was used and as my lot detest parmesan cheese and used finely grated sharp cheddar and out of shear habit I did spray them with oil and baked at 175C fan forced for 45 minutes for crispy moist chicken which we all enjoyed. Thank you nemokitty, made for Everyday A Holiday tag game.
This was yummy and the mustard a nice change up. I really liked that this didn't ask for the usual added application of butter or oil over the crumb crust. By not using that the crust didn't brown up much but I'll gladly swap that brown for the save in the fat department. My single issue with this recipe is the time and oven temp ask for. I'll be the first to say that my oven does run on the hot side but not a lot. I used one huge breast (it was easily big enough for DH and I to share, the thick part was an inch deep!) and I baked it @390 for exactly 20 mins. At that temp and time it was perfectly cooked, not a hint of pink but still quite moist and tender. Baked at 425 it would have been over cooked and dry, especially if you are using average size thinner breasts. My thinking is that it's easier to return something to the oven for a few more mins if needed than it is to enjoy something that has dried out. Thanks nemo for posting, this was well enjoyed :D
