Baked Chicken Breasts with Mustard Crust  

Total time: 40 minutes
  The key to giving these a crispy crust is to drizzle them with olive oil after breading, before baking.  You could also spray them with olive oil or other cooking spray if you have it.  The crust keeps the chicken moist and the mustard adds an unexpected hint of savory sharpness.
