Parmesan-Crusted Chicken with Agurla Salad

Why just have a plain salad when you can have a Parmesan-Crusted Chicken with Agurla Salad! Dress up your chicken and enjoy a healthy salad or sidedish!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, divided
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 4 (6 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1⁄2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon water
  • 4 cups packed arugula
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved



Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk 2 teaspoons of the mustard with 2 teaspoons of the olive oil and the thyme.
  3. Season the chicken breasts, on both sides, with salt and pepper – then brush them all over with the mustard mixture.
  4. Pat about 2 T. of the parmesan on EACH chicken breast (both sides) – it should take about 1/2 Cup total for all 4 breasts.
  5. Transfer the chicken breasts to a rimmed baking sheet (I line mine with alum. foil sprayed with just a touch of Pam – for easy release and clean-up).
  6. Bake the chicken on the top shelf of the oven for about 15 minutes, or until just cooked through and nicely browned.
  7. Meanwhile, in a salad bowl, combine the remaining 1 teaspoon each of mustard and oil; then stir in the water.
  8. Add the arugula (or spring mix lettuce) and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper and toss well.
  9. Spoon the salad onto plates, top with the chicken and serve!
