      Spot-on! DH says it is the best mustard chicken dish he'd ever eaten--and this feeling is shared by myself and DS. Just great. Used Grey Poupon country dijon, and left out the chives and parsley 'cos i didn't have any in the house. Wow. I wish so bad there were leftovers, as I am still wanting just one more bite! Thank you, Caroline Cooks!

      Great chicken! This was quick, and produced very moist, tender chicken with a lot of flavor. Thanks for a really nice weeknight dinner!

      We really enjoyed this chicken! It was messy, but overall, easy and quick to make. I subbed Kraft parm cheese (sorry!) and dried herbs and it was still great. Served with garlic mashed potatoes, salad and peas, it made for a great supper! Thanks so much for posting! I will definitely make again!
