Quick and easy to make. Everyone enjoyed this meal - especially my 6 yo. Served it with roasted sweet potatoes and a salad. Will make again.

Great recipe! I cooked it as written, except I left it in the oven a little too long. I am sure the actual time is fine. Easy to assemble! Tasted great!

Great recipe for the weeknight. I actually messed up and forgot to brush the medallions with the dijon mustard before dredging them into the panko crumbs. I ended up brushing it on after searing them in the pan. I also baked them in the oven a little longer than 8 minutes. I made it with the suggested Roasted Root Vegetables recipe and have been eating the leftovers for lunch at work ever since. It heats up nicely with the help of some paprika and garlic powder!

Pretty simple prep. Used half dijon/half whole grain and added the herbs & seasonings to the mustard blend rather than to the panko. Served with the recommended roasted veg and whole-leaf spinach. Nice combo, very good.

Hard to believe how easy these are. Made it exactly according to the directions and it was delicious and moist. We had the left overs on flat bread with mustard and sauerkraut. This will be a staple and in the rotation. july 2013 - we're still eating this - a go to dinner so very simple and tasty - the fresh herbs make them even better
