  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 C dijon mustard
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 1/4 C lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 C panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 C plain breadcrumbs


  • In a medium bowl, combine mustard, honey, lemon juice, salt, cayenne and red pepper flakes. Reserve 1/4 cup marinade in a separate dish if making a salad.
  • Slice chicken in half to create two thin filets. Cut filets into 6-8 strips each.  Repeat with remaining chicken breasts. Add chicken strips to marinade. Toss to coat well. Cover and chill for at least one hour.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix panko and plain breadcrumbs in a small bowl. Taking one chicken strip at a time, toss in breadcrumbs. Transfer to parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until desired crispness is reached. After the first 10 minutes, flip chicken strips. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or on top of a salad.
