Dijon Thyme Chicken - A Quick and Easy Entree

"This is so good." Those were the words that greeted me after Mr. Gooch sat down to dinner last Monday night. He thought this dish was a total winner. How I love it when a recipe that I found on the internet turns out so tasty. And the best part about this recipe is how easy it was to put together.

The butter mixture is so tangy with the Dijon mustard and garlic. I am trying to figure out other types of meat it would work with. We liked it that much.
This will definitely be added to the dinner rotation on a regular basis.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into chicken strip sized pieces (used 2 very large breasts)
bread crumbs, enough to cover all pieces

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, combine the butter, mustard, onion, garlic, thyme and pepper flakes.
Dip chicken in butter mixture, then coat with bread crumbs.
Place in a greased baking dish.
Bake, uncovered for 30-35 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.
