- Side One - Cut Out Below -

Crispy Dijon Chicken

  • 3/4c. dry unseasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/3 c. Dijon mustard
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 4 (4 oz. each) boneless skinless chicken breast (halves)
  • 1/2 lb. extra firm tofu, cut into 4" slabs


  • Take out two cereal bowls and place the bread crumbs in one, the mustard in the other:
  • Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a non-stick skillet.

- Side Two- Cut Out Below -

Crispy Dijon Chicken (cont.)

  • Dip chicken and/or tofu in mustard, then roll in the crumbs.  Brown each side in the skillet for 4 - 5 minutes.

Serving suggestion: The chicken is for my family, the tofu for me.  I cook them together and it makes enough for two meals for us.  Other components of a typical meal for my family, such as herbed brown rice, baked sweet potatoes, fresh steamed broccoli, and fruit salad, are the same for all of us.

This recipe (with my tofu modification) is from Lickety-Split Meals for Health Conscious People on the Go! by Zonya Foco, RD.  I love this cookbook and recommend it to all my clients.    Enjoy!
