"My fiance really loved this. I was really pushed for time, so it didn't marinate as long as I would have liked. However, it was still a great dish. I increased the chipotle hot sauce in the glaze for a bit more kick. Also, next time I make it, I will omit the Dijon mustard in the marinade and increase the brown sugar in the glaze."
