      Update: I made this wonderful chicken today, exactly as written, using the celelry. Don't leave it out, it really adds to the flavor of the dish. Wonderful served with mashed potatoes and carrots.

      We really enjoyed this tasty meal Teresa. The chicken was wonderful, great flavor, moist and juicy, very tender. The sauce was wonderful. I served it over homemade spagetti noodles, that I coated in the sauce for an extra treat. Made as noted but omitted the celery, as I was out. Thank you for sharing this keeper Teresa.

      This is one of the best chicken breast recipes that I have made in a very long time. I just canned Jellyqueen's Hot Pepper Jelly and used it to make this recipe. I had made a hotter version so there was a lot of delicious heat. The chicken was very tender and so, so flavorful. I made 4 times the sauce than the recipe called for, decreasing the Dijon mustard to half. You can bet I'll be making this alot. Too bad for the recipents of my pepper jelly. It is mine. :) Thanks Teresa for a great recipe. Made for PAC Fall 2011

      I halved a boneless chicken breast to get an equal thinness, and halved the other ingredients. I absolutely loved the celery sticks in the sauce.....that was the unexpected bonus in the recipe. The celery sticks with the sauce were yummy. This was a really delicious quick and easy chicken dish....I'm saving it to make again! Thanks for sharing. Made for Zaar Stars.
