Baked Chicken Cutlets

This one I love!! Everyone eats it!! You can almost always find boneless chicken breast on sale for $1.99lb. That's all my family will eat.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (store brand)
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg
2 tsp dijon style mustard (if you dont have this don't worry about it. It just adds a little zing)
1/4 tsp black pepper

1 Spray baking sheet with cooking spray (I use store brand canola or olive oil spray) set aside. Combine parmesan and bread crumbs on a piece of plastic wrap (easy clean up) or you can do it on a large plate. Lightly beat the egg and mustard in a bowl.

2 Season the chicken with the pepper. Dip each chicken breast into the egg mixture and then dredge in the bread crumb mixture until evenly coated. Shake off any excess bread crumbs.

3. Place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet and lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Bake until golden brown and cooked through, 20 - 25 minutes. Chicken is cooked through if juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a knife or fork.

Serve with baked french bread brush them with a little olive oil and some crushed garlic or garlic powder. For a vegie either bagged salad or I like the steam in bag veggies now that you can get them in store brand. They are still more expensive then regular frozen veggies but I really can't cook veggies. So the steam in bag works for me. Your not saving any money if no one will eat them. Broccoli always goes good with chicken.
