Zoolander Chicken

Really, really, ridiculously easy and delicious! I wasn't in the mood to cook dinner tonight, nevermind be creative, so I foraged in the freezer for some chicken cutlets. I always keep the freezer stocked with cutlets because they defrost quickly and are just the right portion. I smeared them with some German mustard (oh, so vinegary and tangy) and then crusted them with a couple of tablespoons of plain breadcrumbs mixed with a couple of tablespoons of grated Grana Padano cheese (less expensive than Reggiano but so much more delicious than standard issue Parmesan.) Toss into a hot 400 oven and cook for 15 minutes. I served the chicken with some brown rice made with Thai coconut curry broth and steamed snap peas. For a last minute supper it was really good and definitely a keeper. What do you do to avoid the take-out menus at dinnertime?
