Panko-Crusted Chicken with Mustard-Maple Pan Sauce

Sounds fancy but it's so easy! This is definitely a crowd-pleaser and you will want to make it again and again. I got this recipe from Enjoy!

My notes: You can find Panko breadcrumbs in Publix near the other breadcrumbs. If you can't find them, ask - you definitely can't subsitute with regular ones! This recipe makes a lot of sauce so I double the chicken. I cut the breasts in half to make smaller pieces and pounded them very thin. I think I had 8 altogether. I also added a little more syrup than the recipe called for because when I tested the sauce it was a little more mustardy than sweet. Just adjust if necessary. This is an amazing meal! You could serve it with roasted potatoes and vegetables and a small salad.

Panko-Crusted Chicken with Mustard-Maple Pan Sauce (from

2 8-ounce skinless boneless chicken breast halves, cut crosswise in half
1 large egg
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh Italian parsley
2 teaspoons plus 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup low-salt chicken broth
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon coarse-grained mustard
1 tablespoon chilled unsalted butter

Using meat mallet or rolling pin, pound chicken in resealable plastic bag to 1/3-to 1/2-inch thickness. Whisk egg, parsley, and 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard in large bowl. Place chicken in egg mixture; turn to coat. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Dip each chicken piece in panko; turn to coat. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook until brown and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side.

Meanwhile, whisk broth, syrup, coarse-grained mustard, and remaining 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard in glass measuring cup.

Transfer chicken to plates. Add broth mixture to skillet; boil until reduced to 3/4 cup, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes. Add butter; whisk until melted. Spoon sauce alongside chicken.
