This was very tasty. The chicken came out very moist and tender. The sauce was very flavorful and was very quick & easy to prepare with very accurate, detailed instructions. I found the sauce to be more tomato flavored than the expected dijon, and the tomato paste made the color of the sauce a slightly unattractive dark orangey/red. I think I would reduce the amount of tomato paste next time, or even omit it, and add just a bit more dijon and cream. Still, this recipe as is was very tasty and we enjoyed it.

Very very good for being so quick! The tomato paste adds a nice texture to the sauce, but the color isn't very pretty, I may have to see if that can be substituted without ruining the velvety sauce. Delicious!

This is now a favorite in our house. We omit the tomato paste, and add extra mustard and cream because we like more sauce. But an excellent dish, and I do make it with the baked rice, a good combination. Thanks!
