"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."

"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."
