So I figure I'd better contribute something besides questions. Here's something new I made last night. Don't laugh. Basically out of a Betty Crocker cookbook, slightly tweaked. It's not very sophisticated, and I'm sure it could be improved upon, but I'd never done it before - like I say, I'm in a five-dish rut lately. And Sister Momonjii liked it, too.
boneless chicken breasts
1/2 stick butter
3/4 cup panko
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated (best if you grate it yourself)
2 tbsp Dijon mustard (we used Maille)
Herb de Provence to taste
1. Melt the butter and mix it together with the mustard in a wide flat dish.
2. Mix the parm, panko, and Herb de Provence together in a ziploc bag - can you see where this is going?
3. Roll a chicken breast in the butter/mustard mix until thoroughly gooey.
4. Pop the chicken breast into the bag o' dry stuff, seal, and shake until enough of the dry stuff sticks to the goo.
5. Put the chicken breast into a glass baking pan.
6. Repeat until you're out of chicken breasts and/or dry stuff.
7. Bake at 375 for 20-30 minutes, turning once.
Like I say, real simple. And suspiciously like something we used to eat as kids that came in a box. But pretty good - the chicken came out very juicy, and the parm/panko/herb mix was very flavorful.
