    I love this recipe and so does my picky boyfriend. I add some honey to the mustard mix to add a bit of sweetness. I have also used both stone ground and Dijon and it works well either way. For the bread crumbs I always used ritz type crackers and add classic Italian herbs and grated Parmesan. Which I believe make the best coating. The last suggestion I have is to make cuts into the chicken, just over half way through the breast, and add minced garlic into the slices. It add a nice flavor and keeps the chicken incredibly moist. Oh yeah, and I also leave out the lemon juice because I rarely like the flavor.  -  06 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The first time I made this it was with a generic 'spicy brown mustard,' and I was disappointed with the lack of flavor. Then I made it again using prepared Coleman's English mustard and, boy, did it make a difference! Really tangy and delicious! The only change I make is to add a little finely-grated Parmesan to the bread crumbs. I would also consider mixing a tbsp of honey with the mustard. Great recipe. Thanks!  -  01 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was so good! I pretty much stuck to the recipe with the exception of the following: Used unseasoned panko crumbs, Olivio instead of butter, and I baked it for 30 minutes on 425 degrees. I also removed the foil for the last 7 minutes of cooking to crisp it up. Topped with a pinch of locatelli romano, which I also mixed about 2 tablespoons in with the panko. It was so delicious, I will be making this again. Low calorie too! Served with roasted asparagus spears, and brown n' serve rolls for the man in the house. Excellent! In a later version of this, I put fresh mushrooms in the dish and let them bake with the chicken. Oh my! This recipe is now a weekly favorite at mi casa!  -  28 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
