This had lots of flavour, but I think the lemon and mustard was just a bit sharp for the chicken. Next time I make it I will add 1/4 cup of cream to cut that sharpness.

We really liked this. My hubby isn't a big fan of chicken. But he said "You have to make this again!"I made it just as the recipe was, except I used honey dijon 'cuz that is what I had. Thanks.
