In this classic dish, a luscious sauce of lemon juice, Dijon mustard and green onions ideally complements tender chicken breasts that are browned to a golden perfection on the stovetop.—Elissa Armbruster, Medford, New Jersey

"No Brandy, cream or shallots? Hard to make Diane Sauce without the 3 main ingredients!"

"This recipe is a nice, delicious surprise. I happened to have all of the ingredients and needed to use up some green onions that were in my fridge. I served this with rice and added an additional pat of butter to the sauce for richness. This makes 4 servings but it would be easy to pare down or increase ingredients for less or more people. Perfect for sunday supper or any special occasion. I will definitely be making this again."

"Sauce doesn't make enough for 4 chicken breasts so double the sauce ingredients. Overall it was a great flavor."

"The sauce is tangy and wonderful ! It went together very quickly. I thickened mine with a little bit of Corn Startch. Very tasty and you may want to double up on the ingredients. It does not make much. I bumped the chicken stock up to 1/3 cup and it could have used a little more. Everyone will surely want their share of the sauce.

"My husband really like this. I served it over orzo pasta and doubled the sauce so it could cover the chicken and the pasta. It was very good. Restaurant quality!"
