MAKE IT CUTE
1. Preheat the oven to 375. Over a plate, roll pieces of bread between the palms of your hands until you've made a cup of very small bread crumbs. Leave the crumbs on the plate to dry out while you prepare the rest. Put a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil onto a large baking sheet. Smear a generous amount of oil onto the foil with a paper towel.
2. Put the cheese, thyme, salt, cayenne, and pepper into a medium mixing bowl. Put the bread crumbs into the bowl and stir to mix. On a cutting board, carefully cut the chicken into two-inch long strips.
3. Put the mustard onto the empty bread crumb plate. Brush or spoon the mustard onto both sides of a piece of chicken. Dip the chicken into the bread crumb mixture so it's well covered and place on the baking sheet. Continue with the rest of the chicken.
Serve: Arrange on a platter and dip chicken into a small bowl of barbecue sauce or ketchup. Or, make a sandwich with a bun, lettuce, tomato, and mayo. Leftovers can be refrigerated for a few days.
