My daughter sent me this recipe last weekend. I tried it last night and it was a hit. Let it marinate all day or overnight.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Salt and pepper the chicken breast halves to taste, (I use a season salt called Herbamare-available in health food stores or on line).
  2. Marinate the chicken breast halves in the mixture of white wine and Dijon mustard.
  3. Marinate for 6-8 hours, the longer the better.
  4. Discard the marinate.
  5. Combine the wheat germ and parmesan cheese.
  6. Coat all sides of the chicken with the wheat germ and parmesan cheese mixture.
  7. Put on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  8. Bake at 425º for 15-20 minutes.
  9. Enjoy!

This turned out very good! Hubby said "I love that it's so moist." I said it's because of the mustard and wine marinade. Thanks so much for this one. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag Game 2011.

Well, Tom didn't know what wheat germ was (he thought it was a liquid), so he ended up leaving that out "couldn't find it at HEB" *laugh* BUT this was still super yummy. So simple, yet absolutely scrumptious. A keeper!
