Sweet Crunchy Mustard Chicken

35 mins (prep 10, cooking 25)

Originally from Food and Wine, 01/03, I found it posted on Cooking Light Board. Below is the review given by another poster. It has become a regular at my house and I'm always delighted when my very selective husband requests more. I make mine with bone-in, skin-on breasts and panko crumbs. You can whip together the ingredients and prep the chicken while your oven heats up. **This is one of those "Why don't I make this more often??" recipes. It's easy, delicious, uses what most of us have on hand. The chicken is tender, a little sweet, a little savory, very moist. The original calls for bone-in, skin-on breasts. I use boneless, skinless. The chicken is cooked so quickly at a high temperature that the chicken doesn't dry out. I do have to fudge a bit to get the crunchiness- which gets lost without the fatty skin: I spray the outside with cooking spray after sprinkling on the crumb mixture. Using Panko or cornmeal instead of bread crumbs would up the crunch quotient even more, I'll bet.**
