  • Combine the cornmeal, breadcrumbs (or crushed cornflakes)cayenne, salt and pepper in a shallow sided dish.
  • Brush the chicken all over wth the mustard.
  • Place the chicken in the crust mixture and pat the mixture onto the chicken to coat it on all sides.
  • Set on a baking sheet skin side down and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Turn the pieces over and bake for 15 minutes more.
  • Drizzle the top of the chicken with honey and bake for 10-15 more, or until cooked through.
  • *For a calorie reduced version of this dish, remove the skin from the chicken before coating.
  • ** I made this tonight using boneless, skinless chicken breasts, it was really tasty -- just decrease the cooking time.
