      Heat clarified butter in sauté skillet over medium-high heat.

      Very, very good. So aromatic while cooking. I've always wanted to eat at Tavern on the Green in NYC but never have. This was the next best thing to being there. French bread would go wonderful with this.

      I just loved this! I substituted dijon for the whole grain and used fat free half and half in place of the heavy cream. Fantastic!

      This was absolutely delicious!The chicken came out golden brown,and covered in the wine-cream sauce with whole mustard,made a lovely presentation.I thought that the mustard would be over-powering, but I was wrong. It lent just the right amount of flavour to the sauce. Thankyou Miller for a wonderful,fast and easy recipe that I'll make over and over again.
