Honey Mustard Crusted Chicken

Honey Mustard Crusted ChickenOur Honey Mustard Crusted Chicken has been voted Best Chicken recipe by MRC clients since it debuted in our cookbook in 2008. It's simple, easy, family friendly, and it resembles fried chicken!

This chicken recipe is baked, not fried, saving your lots of greasy calories! Flavor tip: mustard is a great way to add flavor without calories!

 

We use panko bread crumbs, 50 calories per chicken breast. On your MRC menu a carb serving is up to 50 calories, you could use crumbled melba toast, or homemade crumbs from 50 calorie bread. Panko crisps easily, so we tend to use it when we are trying to create that fried crust vibe.

Ingredients:

  • (2) 4 oz. chicken breast, split, pounded thin
  • 1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs (or 6 melba rounds)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1  TBSP. olive oil
  • 3 tsp. Dijonaise mustard
  • Pinch salt and pepper
  • 1 pkg. zero calorie sweetener

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Line jelly roll pan with aluminum foil and set aside.
  3. If using Melba, crush Melba to make coarse crumbs.
  4. Empty crumbs into shallow bowl and add salt, pepper, and thyme.
  5. Drizzle olive oil over crumb mixture until evenly coated.
  6. Place clean, dry chicken breast on jelly roll pan.
  7. Add sweetner to Dijjonaise, then spread over top of chicken.
  8. Press chicken breast in crumb mixture (or press crumbs directly on top of chicken, they will stick to mustard).
  9. Bake 20-25 minutes until chicken is done and crumb coating is crunchy.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
