    So flavorful! I used Porq brand panko which is made from pork rinds, and deli-style mustard with horseradish in it. Needs to be cooked on a rack to crisp properly, and my cooking time was 20 minutes instead of 14. Everyone loved it and is already asking when I'll make it again. Husband asked me to send the recipe to his mom!

    Came out pretty good. My chicken breasts were thick, and it took about 15 extra minutes to cook them through. It was tough to flip the chicken without pulling a bunch of the breading off, but that's really the only complaint.

    It came out really good. I did leave mine in there just a few minutes longer, but other than that, it was delicious.

    great... however I did have to bake it longer than the time suggested...

    The flavor was great, prep was simple and it paired well with steamed Broccoli and rice. it did take an extra 15 minute longer to cook, but I believe that is partially because of my oven and partially because the chicken breasts I used were a bit thick. I'm definitely going to try this again with thinner breasts and also see if I'm able to get the panko crumbs to crisp up properly.

    Turned out amazing!! I added some more spices such as curry, garlic powder. I didn’t use Panko bread crumbs I just used the one I had.

    I first want to echo something the other comments have mentioned: 14 minutes was NOT enough to cook the chicken. It obviously depends on the thickness, but I had pretty standard chicken breasts that needed almost 15 additional minutes (I ended up flipping them over again). The flavor tasted great. Coming from two people who do not like mustard or mayonnaise, dredging them just enough to layer on the bread crumbs and cheese provided the perfect amount of flavor. I’m big on cheese, so I doubled what it called for and STILL feel like I would add more next time. The instructions don’t mention any side dishes, so we went with sweet potato fries, as the picture inspired us.

    It took extra time to cook the chicken all the way through and the panko never got crispy.

    I cooked it until crispy on the bottom - at least an additional 12 minutes more than the recommended 7 minutes before turning. Once turned, I cooked it until crispy on the other side - about another 10 minutes. It came out brown and crispy! I served it with roasted green beans and 3 cheese risotto. Delicious meal

    this recipe came out great. I'm not the best cook but I the home maker of this household so I rely greatly on Yummly recipes for inspiration. I have to say that this one was a hit! The chicken was juicy on the inside and crispy and flavorful on the outside.

    Good but not amazing.

    This was quick and easy to make. I didn't have Dijon mustard so I used honey mustard. We actually drizzled additional honey mustard on top and ate it that way. Son and boyfriend loved. I'll be making this again

    I would use less parmesan cheese. I thought the cheese taste was too much. I also used a cooling rack on the pan and the chicken crisped right up. I also cooked it for 10 mins on each side so a total of 20 mins cook time. Otherwise it was easy to make and tasted good.

    Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and used a meat thermometer. It was ready at the time specified in the recipe. It was crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Flavors were good. Could try adding a little more salt. Very easy to make.

    It was really great and juicy. I did let it cook a few minutes longer. We enjoyed ours with green beans, mash potatoes and toast.

    Very tasty! However, the cooking time needs to be adjusted. I baked it at 350 degrees for 15 minutes then turned it up to 425 degrees for 7 minutes on each side as it was recommended on the recipe. It came out fully cooked, juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside.
