Mustard Fried Chicken Breasts

Total time: 30 minutes
   I don't remember where the original recipe came from but I've been making these for years.  The crust is light, yet crisp and the chicken tender; the mustard adding just a hint of flavor.  I use the Parmesan in a can for this rather than freshly grated - it's drier and works better for the coating..
