Kittencal's Tender and Juicy Breaded Dijon Chicken Breast

"You may not have your chicken any other way after you taste this! --- browning the chicken in oil firstly adds lots flavor, make certain to bread all the chicken breasts and have them ready on a plate before browning."

Ready In:




  • Prepare an ungreased baking sheet/pan.
  • Pat the breasts dry using paper towels.
  • In a shallow dish whisk the eggs with Dijon mustard until well blended.
  • In another shallow dish (I use my 8x8-inch baking pan for this) combine the dry bread crumbs with the garlic powder, seasoned salt, black pepper, paprika and cayenne pepper.
  • Have 1 or 2 plates ready to put the breasts on after breading I just use the ungreasd baking sheet.
  • Dip one chicken breast into the egg/mustard mixture allowing any excess to drip off, then place the breast into the breadcrumb mixture turning to coat with the crumbs and pressing down with hands firmly to adhear the coating to the chicken; place onto a plate (or the prepared baking sheet).
  • Continue with remaining chicken.
  • Cover the bottom of the skillet with oil then heat over medium-high heat.
  • Add in the breaded chicken breasts one or two at a time and brown both sides (about 3 minutes per side or until golden brown, do not cook thoroughly).
  • Transfer to ungreased baking sheet.
  • At this point you may leave the chicken in the pan until ready to bake.
  • Set oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Bake the browned chicken for 30 minutes or until cooked through.

  1. What would the cooking time be for split bone in breasts


  1. Tried this tonight for the first time. I was looking for a recipe that was simple, using what we had on hand, using up the chicken breast in the fridge. This recipe did not fail us!! Thank you so much for a simple, delicious, and moist recipe.
  2. De-Freaking-licious!! Didn't change a thing. Used home-made breadcrumbs just because I prefer them in recipes. Sides were fresh garlic green beans and wild rice. Definately saved this one for future meals.
  3. I made this recipe last night and it was delicious. There were no leftovers and everyone had seconds, even my picky eaters. The chicken was so moist and tasty. I have never tried a recipe I didn%u2019t like from Kittencal and I have tried many. Thank you so much Kittencal for posting so many good recipes. On the nights where I just can%u2019t think of another thing to cook, I just look up Kittencal and pick something new.
  4. This is our new favorite way to have chicken breasts. The chicken breasts stayed moist and had incredible flavor! My DH wants me to try the same recipe with chicken thighs. I'll let you know how that goes. Thanks for sharing, Kittencal!
