Reviews for 15-Minute Marinated Chicken
"I broiled the chicken and it was extremely moist and tasty. I will definitely be making this again."
"Easy, quick and great flavor."
"Honestly, I was a bit hesitant to try this since I'm not a big dijon mustard lover. But it's so delicious I've made it three times in two weeks! I marinate my meat longer, overnight usually, and it's so tasty! A nice break from regular barbecue with plenty of flavor so that it doesn't need anything else. I've been stocking up on dijon mustard to keep making this and haven't made any changes except extending marinating time."
"I really enjoyed this recipe! I like the mustard flavor the chicken had.I used a gluten free stone ground mustard instead of dijon mustard due to having that in the house. Also if you are making this recipe gluten free verify your Worcestershire sauce is also gluten free.I added a little garlic and fresh thyme because everything tastes better with garlic in my opinion. Next time I make this recipe I will used only fresh thyme instead of tarragon. Tarragon is not my favorite herb. This recipe was so easy. I will definitely be making it again!"
"Aweful. Disregard those who say they dont like mustard or dijon and found this good. Its horrid. The mustard dominates everything...its all you smell when you grill, its all you notice when you eat it...its rotten. If you like mustard you'll love this, otherwise avoid it like the plague. You do not taste any of the other ingredients. So i am guesing the "happy" reviewers know the author or are schills. Because plainly, this one blows. If you still want to try it i'd say cut the mustard down to 1/4 of what this recipe calls for..at MOST."
"I don't usually like mustard but as a marinade it was pretty good the way it blended with the other sauces and seasonings. Will certainly make it again."
"While I was initially somewhat sceptical about the recipe as I don't particularly like the taste of Dijon Mustard, the spice and flavour it provided was fantastic! I chose the option of a longer marinade in the refrigerator and am making it a second time in one week. Great choice for a change in the busy week and highly recommend."
"Even the picky eater in my family loved this one."
"I really enjoyed this recipe. I think this marinade would be good on any meat. I think I will try it on pork chops."
