"I broiled the chicken and it was extremely moist and tasty. I will definitely be making this again."

"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!"
