Herb and Panko Crusted Chicken Breast

Using the dressing as a coating for a crust is so versatile across so many dishes. Think of a classic schnitzel, without the deep-frying. Simply coating meat and vegetables with the Dijon mustard brings another level of flavour and complexity.

  • Replace chicken with sliced pan fried eggplant for a vegetarian option.

  • For ease of sharing, cut chicken breast into large cubes for nuggets or replace with tenderloins.
