    We love chicken, so I’m always searching for a new and interesting recipe. These chicken breasts sound very tasty, and also quick and easy to prepare. I’ll ‘brush’ the chicken with Dijon mustard, instead of ‘dipping’ it (since I’ll use much less mustard by doing so). I’ll then roll the chicken in the crushed French Fried Onions, into which I’ll sprinkle a few shakes of dried parsley, and a couple of tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese (the dry kind from a plastic jar…LOL). Don’t get me wrong, since the original recipe was very nice….but I altered this recipe a bit, since I know what my family likes. I’m sure we’ll enjoy this.

    Hi Kay,

    Can you describe in more detail the problem you are having? Perhaps you did not have enough of the mustard on the chicken before rolling it in the coating?

    Booby I coated the chicken fairly well with the mustard some what crushed the onions so they were not to big but didn’t know if I should of let the chicken rest with the coating on for a bit before cooking ? I just feel like it wasn’t a all over coating like your photo shows.

    The flavor was great and my son home from college really like it I just wanted it to look like the photo more ๐Ÿ˜‰
