Easy, tasty and pretty good. I used panko instead of making my own breadcrumbs. I also added canola oil mayo to the mustard and skipped the spray oil on the breadcrumbs. My chicken turned out juicy, but not very tender.

This recipe is awesome! It is cheap, super easy and delicious. What more can you ask for? Since I'm Cajun I like really spicy food, and I did not find this too spicy with the full amount of cayenne, however my husband and daughter are more sensitive, so now I halve the red pepper with chili powder, and everyone is happy. Also, if you turn your old bread into breadcrumbs and keep them in a ziploc bag you never have to buy breadcrumbs, and you'll have them on hand for this dish and can skip that step.

This is fine. The cooking time made the chicken a little dry and the only real flavor came from the mustard. I would like to make some changes such as using cutlets, cutting the cooking time down, and maybe try mixing grated parmesan cheese into the bread crumbs. This recipe isn't something I would serve to company but was fine for a weeknight meal.

I made the entire menu and it was very tasty and easy. Used dijon mustard as that is my husband's favorite. The rice was great and the broccoli with shallots was just right. My family does not love broccoli but I got a thumbs up on this one.

My husband and I really liked this chicken. For the mustard I used half stone ground mustard and half yellow mustard. It was quick, easy, and I had all the ingredients on hand.

Its okay. I've had much yummier chicken. It was not too spicy or anything - I just think coating it in mustard was kind of "eh." It is another way to make chicken, but other kinds are yummier

Couldn't be easier. The chicken was very moist too. I did not do the red pepper. I used a mixed peppercorn blend that had a little of the red pepper in it. This is great because it uses ingredients you always have too. You can serve it with almost anything.
