Oven Fried Chicken

This is a great way to make fried chicken. The dijon mustard is a great addition to the flavor of the chicken. We loved it.  The brussel sprouts are just coated with extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper and cooked at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

2 cups Panko bread crumbs
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
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 " 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 25-30 minutes, or until chicken is golden brown. Serve immediately. I cut this recipe in 1/2 because I only made 2 chicken breasts.
