    Wendy W88's Note:

    I have been making this for over 10 years and is the most requested recipe I have! This is everyone's favorite chicken dish I make! It's a nice change from "ordinary" chicken! Goes well with steamed broccoli. (Note: This is a "Diane" recipe, therefore has a mustard taste to it!!)

      This was soooo good! I used apple juice with a drop of vanilla instead of the brandy, but kept to the ingredients. We had it with broccoli and rice, I'll try it with mashed potatoes next time. Thanks for posting Wendy.

      This was fantastic-restaurant quality! It was a really nice blend of flavours that I want to eat again TOMORROW! The only alteration I made was to halve the oil and butter in step 3, and omit the oil in step 10. I used garlic chives as we have them growing in the garden.

      This is a delicious (and quick!) way to make chicken! I had to sub a little, didn't have chives so I used sliced green onion tops, didn't have a lime, so I splashed in about 1/2 tsp. of lemon juice. It turned out great! Thanks for posting! :o)
