Crusted Honey Mustard Chicken

I have had a lot of requests to post this recipe as soon as possible. I have been taunting all my friends by posting Instagram pictures of this chicken. Now it's their turn to taunt me! 

- 2/3 cup honey mustard dressing
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp black pepper
- 2 tsp dill, freshly chopped
- 1 medium uncooked scallion, thinly sliced 
- 1 cup cornflakes, crushed
- 1 lb uncooked boneless skinless chicken breasts 
*adjust the recipe if using less chicken

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Coat a shallow pan with cooking spray.
2. In a small bowl, combine honey mustard dressing, salt, pepper, dill and scallions; remove 1/3 cup and set aside.
3. Place cornflake crumbs in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken into dressing mixture and then cornflake crumbs; place in prepared pan.
4. Bake until chicken is golden and no longer pink in center, about 15 - 20 minutes.
5. Drizzle remaining dressing mixture (the 1/3 cup that was set aside) over chicken breasts and serve. Yields 1 piece of chicken and about 1 1/3 tablespoons of dressing per serving. 

 The honey mustard dressing coating kept the chicken so moist and juicy, and the cornflake coating was a nice texture. I used Safeway brand Honey Mustard dressing (it's our favorite). Served with brown rice and vegetables, it's perfect meal, and the taste is scrumptious! Enjoy!
