Reviews for Herbed Chicken Breasts
"This is an amazingly simple but fresh, light dish. So tasty and serves with a beautiful presentation. My 16 year old son said this recipe is a keeper! Great as a family meal or to serve for guests. I highly recommend this and think anyone and everyone should give it a try!"
"I served this for 65 teenage boys and their leaders, I browned the chicken first and then put it into pans to bake for the final time. It was a huge hit, there was absolutely no leftovers. I used fresh herbs from my garden and the taste was unbeatable, thanks for the great recipe!"
"This recipe is fantastic! I would double the sauce and include a little of the sauce over pasta (we had butternut squash stuffed ravioli with it) I cut the mustard down almost in half"
