Hi loves! My boyfriend, John, and I recently took a holiday to Malibu for the weekend. You cannot go to Malibu without trying Malibu Farm Pier Cafe. Aside from the food being locally sourced, organic and delicious, the café is stunning; it sits atop the end of the Malibu Pier, hosting dreamy California coastal views. I ordered their mustard chicken and could not stop thinking about it for the weeks following (lol). Seriously though…it was amazing! So I decided to recreate it. Here is my rendition of the MB mustard breaded chicken recipe… Happy cooking babes xx
Servings: 4 + Serving Size: 2 Pieces
- 2 boneless, skinless, organic chicken breasts
- salt + pepper to taste
- 2 eggs
- 1.5 tablespoons Dijon mustard (Grey Poupon is the sh*t)
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon ground mustard seed
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- 2 cups Panko breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup shredded parmesan
- 1 tablespoon thyme
- 1 teaspoon onion salt (optional)
- 1/4 cup chopped parsley (optional)
Preheat oven to 400ºF
Cut each chicken breast into ~4 sub pieces
Lightly season with salt + pepper
Crack 2 eggs in small-medium sized bowl
Add in dijon mustard, garlic, ground mustard seed, lemon juice, splash of ground pepper + whisk together with fork
In another small-medium sized bowl, add Panko crumbs, parmesan, thyme, salt, pepper, onion salt + a little ground mustard seed. Mix together.
NEXT: Start heating a large sauté pan over med-high heat. Add oil.
Cover chicken pieces in egg/dijon mixture
Press egg washed chicken pieces into the Panko/Parmesan mixture. Coat all sides to your satisfaction.
Move coated chicken pieces to heated sauté pan. Sear chicken for ~2 short min on each side. Remove chicken. Place into Le Creuset or cast iron equivalent. Bake in oven for 6 min. Flip chicken pieces over. Bake for additional 6 min on other side.
After baking, set oven to a broil at 450ºF and leave in oven for additional 3 min. Remove and garnish with parsley.
Voilá! Serve with salad or veggie. Pairs well with a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.
Cheers babes xx
