"My husband I both enjoyed this chicken dish. It is quick to make. The only change I made was that I pounded the chicken to about 1/4 inch thick to cook faster."

"These chicken breasts turned out to be simple and delicious. The crunch was very satisfying, and the mustard wasn't overpowering. http://meganskitchenadventures.blogspot.com/2010/12/dijon-crusted-chicken-breasts.html"
