Last night I was watching Paula's Best Dishes on Food Network. Miss Paula and Bobby were making oven fried chichen and Marcel said that it looked good. So guess what I am making for dinner?? Yep, Oven Fried Chicken. I just need to stop at the store and pick up some Panko bread crumbs.
2 cups Panko bread crumbs
1 cup grated Parmesan
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons freshly minced thyme leaves
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons water
2 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/4 -inch thickness
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Place a cooling rack over pan and spray rack with nonstick cooking spray.
In a shallow dish, combine bread crumbs, cheese, 2 tablespoons olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper, to taste.
In a separate shallow dish, combine mustard, water, salt and pepper, to taste, and remaining olive oil.
Coat each chicken breast with mustard mixture; dredge each in bread crumb mixture.
Place on prepared rack in pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until chicken is golden brown. Serve immediately.
