    Really good! I served this over quinoa. I always appreciate something new to do with old standbys (chicken tenderloin) and this definitely fit the bill. The rich flavors of the wine and mustard made it taste a little decadent rather than the same old "chicken in a pan". Will likely make this again.

    Very good! I feel you must love dijon to fully appreciate this dish since it was a strong flavor but we felt it paired perfectly with the cranberries. I omitted the green onions (forgot!) but will add them next time. VERY good!

    This recipe was fantastic. I thought I made enough for leftovers, but since everyone had seconds I had nothing to save. I was a little worried the kids wouldn't like the cranberries, but they liked everything. The crazins get nice and soft and the tart taste goes so nicely with the mustard sauce. I served it with brown rice pilaf and a green salad. Thanks for the recipe!

    OUTSTANDING RECIPE! I pretty much followed the ingredients & directions, although I did use 3/4 cup of the berries! Served with some brown rice, this made a really great meal! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
