It was good and different than our normal flair. I made the recipe as specified except I spread the mixture over the chicken instead of stuffing it too. It was a bit too much mustard so I will be using less next time but I am glad I made it and we will have it again.<br/><br/>Plated with mashed potatoes and a mixture of greens (cooked kale and swiss chard) with parmesan..
Flavorful! Next time instead of stuffing the chicken I will just spread over the whole thing. I used 1/4 cup of dijon mustard as everyone was saying 1/3 was too much. I didn't taste it at all so I will go ahead and try the 1/3. Also I sprinkled some garlic salt over it.
Excellent recipe.fancy enough for a dinner party but easy enough for a midweek dinner,Delicious!
