This is a perfect meal for those nights where time is of the essence. Team this up with some mashed potatoes and veggies and you're set! If you'd rather not use milk/dairy, you can make an overnight 'brine' using water, lemon juice, salt, and Dijon. Soak all of the chicken the night before. This will result is really juicy and flavorful.

Sometimes it is difficult to keep chicken from drying out too much when baking... Well, no need to worry about that with this Dijon chicken! Breaded chicken gets a facelift in this easy recipe. The milk and Dijon mustard combination adds flavor and helps to seal in the moisture. When baked, the chicken is tender and the Parmesan bread crumb crust is crunchy. Serve with wild rice, mashed potatoes, or your favorite roasted veggie for an easy weeknight dinner.
