I get bored with the same old chicken, so I came up with this simple recipe. The coating adds fast flavor to tender chicken cooked on the stovetop. —Laura Theofilis, Leonardtown, Maryland

"This was good. I used olive oil instead of butter. I used italian flavored bread crumbs and also added some grated parmesan cheese to the coating. Thanks for the recipe."

"Too much work and messy. All breading stuck to non-stick pan. Would not make again"

"This was good. I have been looking for something like the shake and bake Honey Mustard chicken and this was not that, but tasty. I ran out out bread crumbs and cooked some without them . They were very good and moist."

"I tried this coating on fresh Alaskan Cod I got from Costco. Huge pieces of Cod. Can't wait to do the chicken recipe."

"For those of you that are having trouble with the breading sticking to the chicken; place dipped and battered chicken in the freezer for 15 min and then straight to the hot skillet. This works great for shrimp and mushrooms. I could never get the batter to stay on mushrooms till I tried the freezer trick.

I used equal parts Dijon, honey and mayo for my sauce and I loved this dish that way."

"Excellent recipe. My husband and I really liked it. I made one change -- instead of butter, I used coconut oil. I will definitely make this recipe for company."

"Very good. I have made it with bottled ranch dressing when I didn't have an envelope and it turned out just as good (I used about 1T of bottled ranch). I've found with any recipe that you pan fry that if you put it in the fridge for about 15 mins, the coating sticks better while cooking."
