A note about serious food allergies

If you're in the mood for something fresh yet familiar, this dish really delivers. Nutty Parmesan cheese gets a flavor and texture assist from Dijon mustard and panko breadcrumbs for a crusted chicken packed with deliciousness. It's paired with a fresh spring mix, shallot, and grape tomato salad with oregano-balsamic vinaigrette. When comfort meets simplicity, it’s the perfect one-two punch of a weeknight meal.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using pork chops, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1 and 4, cooking undisturbed, 2-3 minutes. Flip, add Parmesan crust, and roast in hot oven until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-8 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem and mince oregano.

    Halve tomatoes.

    Peel and slice shallot into very thin rounds.

    Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Make the Parmesan Crust

    Thoroughly combine Parmesan, panko, 2 tsp. olive oil, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Make the Balsamic Vinaigrette

    In another mixing bowl, combine 1/3 the Dijon (reserve remaining for chicken), balsamic vinegar, oregano, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

    Slowly pour in 2 Tbsp. olive oil while whisking or stirring vigorously until thoroughly combined. Set aside.

  4. 4

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium oven-safe non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and chicken to hot pan. Cook undisturbed until browned, 2-3 minutes on one side.

    Flip chicken, and remove pan from burner. Top chicken with remaining Dijon and top with Parmesan crust.

    Place pan in hot oven and roast until crust has lightly browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 8-12 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven and rest chicken, 5 minutes.

    While chicken rests, make salad.

  5. 5

    Make Salad and Finish Dish

    Add spring mix, shallot (to taste), and tomatoes to bowl with balsamic vinaigrette. Toss or gently stir to combine.

    If desired, slice chicken into 1/2" pieces.
