Reviews for Honey-Mustard Breaded Chicken
"Too much work and messy. All breading stuck to non-stick pan. Would not make again"
"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."
"Dijon mustard and pinko crumbs.mixed with the flour....omg-great!!"
"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."
"Great flavor. I loved it. Next time I might try adding a little garlic."
"The coating doesn't stay on and it's a bit mushy. If I used oil instead of butter so I could get the pan real hot then it probably would be better. If I try it again, I will put the butter in the sauce and bake it. The flavor was fine though."
