My Dad's Chicken Dijon

Recipe by AustinMama

I don't know where my dad got this recipe but I haven't seen another recipe exactly like it on the 'zaar so I thought I'd post it. It calls for a whole chicken quartered but I just use what I have on hand, usually bone in thighs and/or breasts. Best with a chilled white wine and super with rice and broccoli on the side.
