  • Mix the honey mustard, mint leave, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, remaining 1 teaspoon coarse salt, and remaining 1 teaspoon pepper in a bowl. Add chicken; coat.
  • Dip chicken pieces, 1 at a time, into crumb, nut mixture, coating both sides and pressing to adhere. Transfer coated chicken pieced to baking sheet.
