Quick & Crispy Chicken (And I do mean QUICK!)

These only take about 15 minutes to put together, then you can work on some rice or potatoes and veggies as sides while they’re baking.  You’ll have a homemade meal on the table in less time than it takes for your kids to do their homework!  This is also a good recipe to enlist your children’s help, which will eventually make supper prep even quicker!  You can cut these chicken breasts into strips to make homemade chicken tenders if you want.  Just reduce the baking time accordingly.

If you’re wanting to plan ahead, you can also bread a whole bunch of chicken and freeze some for later.  I would lay the chicken out in one layer on a cookie sheet in the freezer and freeze until solid, then gently put into a freezer bag.  Or, you can layer the chicken in a smaller container, making sure to put wax paper between the layers.

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 c. mayo
2 T. yellow mustard
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese, grated
1 c. crushed cornflakes (Make sure you get your measurement after you’ve crushed them!)
1/2 t. seasoned salt
1/2 t. onion (or garlic) powder

Rinse chicken and pat dry.  Combine mayo and mustard; brush mixture onto chicken.

Combine cereal crumbs, cheese and seasonings; roll chicken to coat.  Place in a greased baking dish and bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes until juices run clear.
