This was a tasty recipe. I would probably try grilling the chicken instead of broiling next time. The mustard was a bit prominent, but I think grilling may seal in the other flavors a little better.

I was a little leary with all the mustard but.....WOW! This marinade is fantastic! Even a friend of mine who hates mustard liked it. I used boneless skinless thighs. Definitely a keeper!

This was great. I made two extra chicken breasts and cut them up to put on top of our salads a few days later. I LOVE cooking once but really twice!
