Bake for 30-35 minutes, until chicken is cooked thoroughly, cheese is bubbly, and breadcrumbs are golden brown.
When chicken is almost done, prepare the sauce.

Parmesan Dijon Cream Sauce
Melt butter in a medium sauce pan over medium-low heat.
Add flour and whisk constantly.
Cook that mixture for 1-2 minutes, and then whisk in the milk.
