Maple-Mustard Almond Crusted Chicken

So I am finally back in the Swing of things after Two weeks of kind of being on a hiatus!

Week 1- went to Disney with my family.

Week-2 unpacked, put the house back together and took care of sick children. ¬†There just isn’t time for blogging when little ones need to be held all day.

The weather was also dreary, which makes picture-taking more difficult. ¬†Winter is coming. ¬†I am going to have to do all my picture-taking during the day. ¬†If you blog, you understand. ūüôā

Ok Rant over.

I know I have mentioned Somewhere on this blog before that I have an infatuation with Honey Mustard.  Well, Lately I have been making Maple Mustard, because I keep forgetting to buy honey at the store.  I love Maple Mustard even more than honey mustard!

Seriously! What is better than Maple Mustard Chicken with an Almond Crust   OMG this was so good!  My husband and 3 year old son gobbled this up in no time!

Maple Mustard Chicken  ( Serves 3 hungry people or 6 kind of hungry people) 

Ingredients 

1.5 pounds of Boneless-Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into strips *  1/4 cup of Mustard * 3 tablespoons of Maple Syrup, 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt,  1 cup of Chopped Almonds,  1 Cup of Italian Breadcrumbs

* If you want this recipe to be Gluten-Free you can omit the breadcrumbs and double the chopped almonds

Directions

In a bowl, Mix together Mustard, Maple Syrup and Greek Yogurt.  Set aside.   In another bowl, Mix together breadcrumbs and chopped Almonds.    Dip each piece of chicken, first in the maple-mustard coating followed by the almond and breadcrumb mixture.   Place on a baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

One reason why I have started adding a sauce underneath a breadcrumb crust is because it makes the chicken so unbelievably moist! ¬†I just love it! ¬†This is a fun dinner to make for those who LOVE chicken fingers with mustard sauce. ¬†( Isn’t that everyone?)

I also should add that the almonds added a great deal of depth to this chicken.  I will be crusting chicken with almonds again sometime soon!
