READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Redsie

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.
