Dijon-Parmesan Chicken

Preheat oven to 375.
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4th cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 stick of butter melted
6 boneless skinless Chicken breasts
about 1 3/4 lbs.

In large plastic food storage bag, mix bread crumbs and cheese. In a shallow dish, stir mustard into melted butter until well blended.
Pat chicken dry. With a pastry brush, coat each piece of chicken one at a time, and coat with the breading mix one at a time. Place on a foil (nonstick is best) lined baking sheet in a single layer. 
Bake uncovered for 20 to 30 minutes. With tongs, turn each piece over half way through the cooking time.
(piercing with a fork lets the juices come out)
This is a very budget conscious meal. Low in fat. And it's really delicious .
