I was worried that this would taste too much like mustard but it didn't at all! It was absolutely DELICIOUS and had a completely unique flavor. My whole family loved it and I wish I had made more than 2 hens! I'm planning to make it again tonight so I thought I would review it and thank you for a WONDERFUL recipe. UPDATE: I tried this with lamb and it was excellent. I love this recipe! I used a cast iron pan to cook it in. Thank you!
Very yummy, and very easy! Always a winning combination in my house. This looked absolutely beautiful when it came out of the oven, and the taste was just as good. I found the breast meat to be just a slight bit overdone, but I'll just take that into account and cook a little less the next time. The pan sauce was wonderful, I drizzled it over the hen and the mashed potatoes that I had on the side, and there was no need for any butter or sour cream on the potatoes. The only change I made was to use 1 1/2 teaspoons of fresh rosemary in place of the dried. Thanks for posting a real winner!
