  • Place two oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper.
  • Place butter in a large microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave. Whisk in the remaining ingredients through to the mustard.
  • On a large platter or sheet pan, combine the bread crumbs and the Romano cheese.
  • Dip each chicken breast in the butter mixture and then in the bread crumb mixture. Place half the chicken breasts evenly spaced on each of the baking sheets. Place in oven and roast for 20 minutes or until coating is browned and the internal temperature registers 165 degrees. Switch baking sheet positions halfway through cooking time.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium saute pan with a lid, over medium heat. Add the rice and saute for 1 minute. Add the water and the salt. Bring to a boil, reduce to low, cover and cook 12-14 minutes. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork, and stir in the Romesco sauce.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk the mayonnaise with the lemon zest and the lemon juice. Season with Kosher salt and pepper. Drizzle sauce over chicken.
