While it may seem quicker to pan-fry chicken, baking chicken can actually be quite rapid, especially if you use breast halves. In this scrumptious recipe, chicken is coated in a mustard-thyme mixture before being dipped in to parmesan cheese. The chicken is then baked at a high temperature until crisp and succulent. A peppery arugula salad pairs nicely with the chicken, however if you dislike arugula substitute spinach or your favorite green. To take a look at the recipe, read more.
