Very good marinade. My husband liked it, too. I had to use the George Foreman grill as our apt complex won't allow grills, but it was still good. Served it with a brown rice/wild rice casserole and it was a nice compliment to the chicken. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
This is a great recipe, my husband loved it!! thank you Dancer^ for sharing it!!
I liked this chicken better than my dad did. If I added some more dijon next time to give it some kick he would probably like it better. Still yummy.
