    Redsie's Note:

    This is soooo good! and so easy to make! The chicken is tender and just a bit spicy (because of the Dijon mustard) and the sauce is a snap to make and very tasty.

      Delicious and easy! Makes more sauce than we needed, though. Could easily halve it. Served it with sauteed zucchini and made for a great low-cal dinner.

      turned out very good. i accidentally added too much butter but it was still yummy. basically i just made extra drippings for the sauce. next time i may add a little honey to it for sweetness to make a honey dijon sauce. will make again.

      Wonderful recipe! I "marinated" the cutlets in the dijon and then coated both sides with finely chopped pecans. I omitted the butter and didn't bother adding the drippings to the sauce. This was soooo easy and sooo tasty - thank you.
