    southern chef in louisiana's Note:

    At Brigtsen's in New Orleans, chef Frank Brigtsen makes a version of this dish with duck, accompanied by corn bread and pickled onions. Offer those sides as well as some green beans, then finish with pecan pie.

      A great recipe, made as written, usually with French grainy mustard and fresh OJ when possible. (Tamaretta, you'll probably never see this, but please don't review a recipe if you haven't tried it as written) We always love it, as do our guests. We adjust the sweetness, heat, and mustard flavors of the sauce just before returning the chicken to the pan, and it's always delicious.

      A great weeknight meal. We served with some garlic rice and green beans. Nice flavor, no changes. The sauce seemed to take alittle longer than suggested to thicken up, but otherwise great. Thanks for posting!

      This made a very easy and tasty weeknight dinner. We aren't huge mustard fans, so I went easy on the mustard (1 TBSP) and forgot the pepper sauce so it was kind of bland. Next time I might add some sage or poultry seasoning to the "gravy". Thanks for posting!
