  • 2 – 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup fresh whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon crushed dried thyme leaves

  2. Spread each piece of chicken with mustard mixture, then roll in bread crumb mixture.
  3. Place chicken in a single layer on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 to 50 minutes for bone-in chicken, 30 minutes for boneless, or until golden brown and meat is no longer pink.
