    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 6
    ½ c. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour
    1 tsp. Hy-Vee garlic powder
    ½ tsp. Hy-Vee salt
    ½ tsp. Hy-Vee black pepper
    2 Hy-Vee large eggs
    2 tbsp. water
    ½ c. Hy-Vee panko bread crumbs
    ½ c. Hy-Vee grated Parmesan cheese
    ⅓ c. quinoa, rinsed and cooked according to package directions
    1 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
    ½ c. Hy-Vee Dijon mustard
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee mayonnaise
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee honey

    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
    2. In a shallow dish, combine flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper. In another shallow dish, whisk together the eggs and water. In a third shallow dish, stir together the panko, Parmesan and cooked quinoa.
    3. Working in batches, place chicken pieces in the dish with the flour mixture and toss to coat. Dip a flour-coated chicken in egg mixture and turn over several times until thoroughly coated.
