This recipe is a favorite at our house for a couple of reasons. 1. It’s soooooo easy! 2. It’s so good! This recipe has essentially 3 ingredients that we almost always have on hand making it perfect for those evening when we need a quick meal. I originally heard about it from our receptionist Linda and have since seen a number of versions on the internet and in cookbooks but I’ve found this one perfect for us. I like to make enough to have leftovers because it’s great on a salad for lunch too.
Dijon Walnut Chicken
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Dijon mustard like a Grey Poupon
Walnuts, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using a hand chopper or food processor finely chop the walnuts. The amount you need will depend on how many chicken breasts you are using. Place the chopped walnuts in a shallow dish.
Place chicken in a large Ziploc bag and coat with Dijon mustard. Make sure each piece is covered in mustard.
Remove the chicken and roll in the walnuts to coat. Place in a 9×13 pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes.
Seriously, it doesn’t get much easier than that! While the chicken is baking, steam some fresh broccoli to serve with it. Top your broccoli with some extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper and you have a delicious meal!
