Mustardy Fried Chicken Breasts

I got this recipe from an ex-boyfriend's mother.It gets rave reviews every time I make it.Just be careful not to overcook the chicken.I usually use Italian style bread crumbs and yellow mustard, but you could use any combination of bread crumbs and mustard that you have. I've used dijon mustard as well with very good results.You could also bake it in the oven, just be sure to cover it so it doesn't dry out.

I've been making these for about ten years and I highly recommend trying them. I cook them on a medium low temp. so that the coating gets nice and crispy and the chicken is nice and moist.

Made with Dijon mustard and panko bread crumbs. Used herb-infused olive oil, freshly grated parm, Colemans mustard. Added some fresh minced garlic. Delish.
