Oven Baked Chicken Dijon

Oven Baked Chicken Dijon Recipe

Last year I picked up a little bottle of basil white wine Dijon mustard from a shop in France. Until today, every time I opened my pantry I would see it and think, “I really should make something with that.” Well days turned into weeks that turned into months and now a year later I FINALLY opened up that little jar of Dijon mustard to make this dish.

INGREDIENTS
7 to 8 chicken tenderloins or 4 chicken breasts
1/4 cup low fat or fat free sour cream
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 egg, beaten
3 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
1 1/2 cups panko
1/2 tsp salt

DIRECTIONS
Mix the sour cream, egg, Dijon mustard, salt, and 2 Tbsp cilantro in a large bowl. Let chicken marinate in this mixture for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Take the chicken from the mixture and coat both sides in panko. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until juices run clear. Garnish with remaining cilantro.

LyB – I love panko too, sometimes I’m just not in the mood for breadcrumbs. :)

cakewardrobe – I bet you can find it in NYC. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen it in Hawaii. I better use it wisely!

sorina – Thanks!!

Sharona May – Thanks, yes the panko helped to keep everything very light and slightly crunchy. :)

That looks extremely tasty! I am a huge fan of Panko. After I began using it, my wife chides me with, “why haven’t you been using this before?”

Excellent pix by the way.

Donald –
Thanks! And that’s okay, you can make up for lost time and just panko everything! Well, maybe not everything but lots of things. I think I like vegetables the most. Eggplant, onions, and green bell peppers are my favorites. Just bake or fry then dip it in tempura sauce…so delicious!

I fry with panko all the time. The food comes out crunchy and dellicious. Never thought of baking with it. I’ll try it next time. The chicken looks like it’s moist. Keep the healthier recipies coming!

Hi M -
Yes, food fried with panko is very delicious! The baked way does taste a little different, but still good. For me, the sour cream and cilantro turn up the flavor enough so that I don’t even miss it being fried. ;)

I made this recipe and it was the most simple and delicious thing ever! What a WONDERFUL idea to combine the flavors of cilantro and mustard. I used honey mustard and it was so yummy :)
