Monday Night Dinner - Easy Baked Chicken



I got home from work at 5:10 and had this on the table at 6:00. Baked Chicken, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Sautéed Vegetable Medley, Green Salad. Nothing fancy but filling and delicious.

Baked Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup melted butter
3/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (or use 1 T dried)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Place chicken in 9 x 11 baking dish. Spread mustard over the tops of the chicken breasts. Drizzle with 1/2 of the melted butter. Combine the breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, parsley and Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle over the chicken breasts. Drizzle with remaining butter. Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes or until done.

Sautéed Vegetable Medley

3 sweet peppers, I used one each of red, yellow and orange, cut into strips
6 medium large mushrooms, sliced
1 cup sugar snap peas, trimmed and cut in half
2 T olive oil
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese (or whatever you have on hand)

Heat the olive oil in a skillet, add mushrooms, peppers and snap peas. Sauté for about 5 minutes or until just starting to be tender. Add balsamic vinegar and remove from heat. Season to taste. Spoon into oven proof casserole dish, sprinkle with cheese and bake for about 10 minutes at 400 degrees.
