1 1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 cups fresh crumbled whole-grain bread crumbs
1 tsp smoked paprika*
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and spray with olive oil or canola oil nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and rub completely with the Dijon mustard.
In a shallow bowl or a pie plate, combine the bread crumbs, paprika, cayenne, salt, and black pepper; dredge the chicken in the mixture to coat overall; pat to hold crumbs in place. Arrange the chicken in the prepared baking sheet; spray with the nonstick spray.
Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Reduce the heat to 425 degrees and bake until golden brown and juices run clear when pierced with fork, about 10 to 15 minutes.
