Healthy "fried" chicken

I love chicken cutlets, but I do not like the calories.  So I found this recipe and changed it up a bit....I am NOT a mayo person, but you do not even taste it, it makes the chicken moist and the breadcrumbs crispy.

Healthy "fried" Chicken

4 boneless, skinless (thin sliced) chicken breasts
1 cup light (low fat) Mayo
1 tsp dijon mustard
garlic powder, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to taste (I did a few shakes of each)
1 cup italian seasoned whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 C grated parmesan

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Mix Mayo, mustard and spices in one bowl.  Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan in another shallow dish.  Coat chicken with mayo, and then coat in breadcrumb mixture, pressing into breadcrumbs to thoroughly coat.  Line 9x13 baking dish with nonstick foil.  Place chicken breasts on foil and bake 22-25 minutes, until no longer pink inside.
