    The mustard choice makes a difference, so pick one with a good flavor- even ground mustard powder can be much more intense. Today I am using smoked paprika, and have just dusted the chicken before the broil with flour/garlic powder/salt and pepper. I parboiled yellow potatoes, put some under the breast, and put the butter mix on and then the rest of the potatoes. I will try to add a photo later.

    Update: Prepared with almonds this time. Flavor again subtle and delicate. Prefer the seasoned bread crumbs. Original Review: Recipe is so simple and the chicken was incredibly moist. The flavor was very subtle and delicate, which was enjoyable. I did use seasoned salt and pepper before broiling and used seasoned bread crumbs on top. Next time I'll try the almonds, and then again by using 1/2 almonds and 1/2 bread crumbs to determine which way is best. Served with buttered new potatoes and succotash. Can't get any simpler. Thanks for sharing.

    My family thought this was kind of bland.

    What a nice surprise!!! This chicken is flavorful, moist and sooo DELICIOUS! The combination of spices are really unique and the almonds add fantastic texture. I followed your recipe exactly, with the exception of adding a bit of salt and peper to the chicken prior to cooking it. My husband kept raving about the basting sauce- I agree, it really was fantastic!!! (My 2.5 year old daughter even gobbled up every bite on her plate!) A definite keeper! Thanks for sharing, Karyl Lee!
