MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 20, 2015

"I tried this last night, but being alone now, had to make adjust it for myself. I had a nice turkey thigh in the freezer and used it. The only changes I made were to add some crushed garlic, and a bit of hot sauce to add to the heat of the chilies. I left the skin on the thighs, and of course had to cook it longer, and was done on the BBQ, but it turned out perfect. Was wonderful with a basic salad I quickly drummed up. Great easy recipe. Thanks a bunch."

"Great tasting quick sauce for chicken. Used yellow mustard, and I didn't think the mustard taste was overwhelming at all."

"Wonderful! Made it with yellow mustard. Flavorful and easy to assemble when you don't have time to marinate ahead of time."

"Simple and delicious. Made it with yellow mustard and it was great. My mom also tried it with Dijon and we didn't like it nearly as much. Yellow mustard is the way to go. Also I used the extra sauce to baste as I grilled the thighs."
