Amazingly Good 20-Minute Crispy Deviled Chicken Breast Recipe

Chicken breasts coated in tangy Dijon mustard and then fried until crisp are a family favorite at my house. One bite of this easy deviled chicken recipe and it'll be a family favorite at your house, too.

Boneless chicken breasts are pounded out until they are an equal thickness, then coated in breadcrumbs, cheese, Dijon mustard and a pinch of cayenne for a little spice. After a quick pan-fry in a little olive oil, they're crisp, golden brown and ready to be eaten for dinner. 

This easy chicken recipe is on the table in about 20 minutes. Serve the crispy chicken breasts with your favorite side dish, a salad or vegetable. You could even make chicken sandwiches with the chicken on a fresh sandwich roll with your favorite toppings. Shred any leftovers to use in other recipes like chicken salad.

I made these a few nights ago, and am making them again tonight. Forgot how good this recipe is! And so simple. I used panko, which I think I prefer now over breadcrumbs. Elisa A. Schmitz 30Seconds
