Crunchy Honey Mustard Chicken

This doesn't happen often enough, but here is a healthy recipe I'd like to share (Gasp!  Healthy!).  It is actually incredibly flavorful for as low calorie, low carb and high protein as it is.  Plus, it's a cinch to put together and toss in the oven.

Ingredients and Directions:

2 chicken breasts, about 4 oz each

8 Melba Rounds (I prefer the Roasted Garlic)

1/2 teaspoon dried Thyme

2 Tablespoons olive oil

2 to 4 teaspoons dijonaise mustard

Pepper to taste

1/8 to 1/4 cup artificial sweetener (if you'd rather not use artificial sweeteners, substitute sugar) 

Preheat oven to 425F.  Line baking pan with aluminum foil and set aside.  Crush Melba Rounds into course crumbs.

Empty crumbs into shallow bowl and add pepper, thyme and sweetener, mixing well.  Drizzle olive oil over mixture.

Pat each chicken breast dry in a paper towel.  Coat with dijonaise mustard, rubbing evenly on meat.

Roll meat in crumb mixture and place on aluminum foil covered baking pan.  Sprinkle additional crumbs over top of chicken.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until chicken is done.
