Thank you for an easy and delicious recipe!
This was soooo good! I did change the recipe a bit to suit our tastes; I used Ritz crackers instead of breadcrumbs, and instead of putting mustard on breasts I made a sauce to top them with (after baking) 1 can coc soup mixed with 2/3 c sour cream and 2 1/2 tsp dijon mustard. I baked about 45 minutes, thanks!
Yum. I used Provelone cheese and a bit more Dijon than called for. Also, I sprinkled the pounded breasts with a little salt and pepper first, and then rolled the chicken in panko (coarse bread crumbs). Served these with a mushroom cheese sauce. Absolutely delicious.
