"Try it, you're going to love it! It just doesn't get any easier than this. Five minutes of prep work, 30 minutes of cooking time, and you have a fantastic meal. The original recipe states that it makes enough sauce for 4 chicken breasts, but I've found that it can easily be stretched to serve with at least 6 decent-size chicken breasts."

"Very very tasty dinner. Easy to mix up and I had dinner on the table in just over a half hour. Can't beat that!"
"I love it when an easy recipe, with mostly pantry-type ingredients, is tasty. For so few ingredients, this chicken is very flavorful! As a personal preference, next time I will add less Dijon and more honey & apricot preserves. I really loved the apricot flavor shining through! I will put this in my make again file. :) Merci Beaucoup! ~Made for ZWT5 - Epicurean Queens~"
"Ever have an evening where you want a delicious meal but have no inclination to prepare it? If so, then this is perfect with stock ingredients, no advance planning or equipment involved and fabulous results. I really liked the way the zing of the Dijon played off the preserves and honey. And the ginger adds just the right pepper bite to the chicken. Thanks NorthwestGal."
"We loved this. And I will tell you why. This afternoon after running-around I had 8 chicken thighs to be used. We had a couple of neighboring folks over, so I thought to myself, "Hey! This is a great time to make an array of 2 different types of chicken!" Four baked with seasoning, the other four using this wonderful recipe, Recipe #318320 and placed them on a large platter with fresh tomato (sliced) and fresh spinach sprinkled around for color. Well, all I can say...is this; there were *NO* pieces of this Recipe #318320 left. All gone! I followed this recipe exactly, except as I mentioned I used chicken thighs (as this was a big sale item!) ~ the ginger really added a delightful touch, coupled with the apricot preserves, mustard, and honey. I saved a bit (1/4 cup or so) of this dressing and doused the top, and served atop of a large tomato with fresh spinach beneath. Easy, easy, easy. Delicious, delicious! Thanks, NorthwestGal! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* tag game. February 2009."
"5 stars for such a quick and easy chicken dish to make. Reviewed for ZWT8 visit to France."
"Very delicious! Tangy and sweet, perfect sauce for baked chicken, husband loved it! Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT8."
"Very tasty chicken recipe! I had peach preserves on hand so that's what I used. Great combination of sweet and savory and very easy to make - thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"Very easy to make and wonderful on the table! The mustard and honey play off against one another and the preserves give it an unusual and delightful texture. We used boneless thighs, since that was what was on hand, and it worked well except for being in smaller pieces. Made for ZWT5."
"This was really good. I cooked it for 30 minutes and the chicken was so moist and tender. I just felt that the WOW! was not there. I expected more flavor. This was a very easy recipe to prepare and serve. Thanks for posting. :)"
"Cut this recipe in half so I could include two chicken recipes for dinner & this one was especially easy to prepare! The combo of mustard, honey & apricot gave this dish something special, & we thank you for posting the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in the current Pick-A-Chef]"
"I thougth this was pretty good. I used orange marmalade instead of apricot preserves. Nice for something different, but not great."
