"Good taste, very moist. I am not a mustard person and would use less mustard, but the chicken was great."
"My husband & I both liked this. It was very easy (and quick) to make. I will make this again."
"The chicken was very good the evening I fixed it. However, the leftovers were not nearly as good."
"Very flavorful and easy to make!"
"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."
"OMG! this was sooo good. I'm making it with chicken tenders next time...mmm"
"simple and tasty...I want to make it again but with honey mustard....."
"my son even ate it and he's very picky."
"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"
"This is incredibly simple but really tasty. The chicken stays nice and moist."
"I bake the chicken at 400°F for 25 minutes to lessen the fat content of the meal. The chicken turns out moist and yummy. I also used honey mustard which is a family favorite."
"Tasty, easy to make, moist chicken...my idea of a recipe to but in my favorites file. For the person who wanted more of a dijon flavor try the dijon with the mustard seeds this is always a stronger flavor and should transfer to the chicken. The regular was good enough for our house, my husband isn't too big on strong mustard flavors. But what I liked is I got the honey and the mustard taste."
