dijon-crusted chicken breasts

My mom gave me a subscription to Taste of Home magazine which I usually end up stealing from here house when I go visit.  Joe and I tried out a recipe from our 1st issue!  It turned out fantastic!  We ate our dijon-crusted chicken breasts with some leftover homemade mashed potatoes from the weekend.  Yum!
