    Very delicious chicken recipe, chia. The chicken was certainly moist and the sauce had delicious flavor. Honey, mustard, and wine are an unbeatable combination. Everyone in the family enjoyed it so will definitely make this one again. Very easy to make, too, so I would recommend it for anyone who doesn't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. Thanks for sharing the recipe and glad I took the dare. ;)

    This was delicious. I love using honey and mustard together and the principle of the recipe is not new to me, but Chia's elements came together to create a very tasty dish. I doubled the ingredients because I had 10 chicken breasts (not very large) but I kept to the recipe. (I'll freeze half later). The only herb I didn't have was dried basil, which I substituted with rosemary. I was lucky enough to have dried French tarragon (so different from the awful Russian tarragon we get here) which I received in the Spice Swap from the garden of French Tart! I flattened the breats a little with a meat mallet to make sure they'd be tender. I didn't even have a good wine: I used a slightly sweet plonk which was in the fridge. Chia, no 4 of the instructions could perhaps be changed -- it would be risky to place the chicken in the skillet in hot oil, and then brush on the marinade, and it's also almost impossible to do! I mixed the sauce in a larger bowl and dipped each chicken breast in the sauce, and then it went to the hot oil! I'd also like to suggest that the sauce be tasted before using, to make sure the honey-mustard-herbs mixture tastes just right for individual tastes. The consistency of the sauce when reduced was perfect. This deceptively simple dish is quick, easy and delicious. Highly recommended! (A last thought: side dishes were brown rice, and steamed broccoli without any sauce or even salt, as it was so fresh. And I made a very large mixed salad. AND, NB: I got darling husband to taste the chicken and sauce when it was finished -- he said it was wonderful!)

    Delicious, fast another great way to fix chicken. DH & I really enjoyed it,the combination of spices with the honey & Dijon mustard is so good. The sauce is good with rice. Thank you Chia for another delicious recipe.

    fast, easy and delicious...who could ask for more in a week night recipe? I couldn't resist adding a chopped onion to the skillet before browning the chicken, and we loved every bite. The leftover Chardonnay wasn't bad either. Thanks Chia for posting this and I hope you try this yourself real soon.

    This was a great chicken dish, however I did make a couple changes. I halved the herbs and substituted rosemary for the thyme. I also flattened the chicken to make the cooking uniform. I highly recommend this dish, the sauce is amazing!
