This might be more like 4.5 stars, because it was a bit mustardy. However, I quartered the recipe, which, as we all know, sometimes throws thing off... so I'm blaming the great divide & rounding up. This was quick, easy & delicious. The kids all LOVED it and kept asking for more of that yummy sauce. Thanks for a great recipe. I'll definitely make this again.
