DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, whisk 2 teaspoons of the mustard with 2 teaspoons of the olive oil and the thyme.
  • Season the chicken breasts, on both sides, with salt and pepper - then brush them all over with the mustard mixture.
  • Pat about 2 T. of the parmesan on EACH chicken breast (both sides) - it should take about 1/2 Cup total for all 4 breasts.
  • Transfer the chicken breasts to a rimmed baking sheet (I line mine with alum. foil sprayed with just a touch of Pam - for easy release and clean-up).
  • Bake the chicken on the top shelf of the oven for about 15 minutes, or until just cooked through and nicely browned.
  • Meanwhile, in a salad bowl, combine the remaining 1 teaspoon each of mustard and oil; then stir in the water.
  • Add the arugula (or spring mix lettuce) and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper and toss well.
  • Spoon the salad onto plates, top with the chicken and serve!
