Reviews for Honey-Mustard Chicken
"Delicious, the pineapple, honey, mustard and ginger combine perfectly to give this dish a great flavor!"
"I loved the honey mustard sauce, very good and very easy to make. I took as much skin off as I could and I baked the chicken at 450 for 30 minutes on each side, basting before putting it in and than again when I flipped the chicken. Probably a little overkill, but I hate when chicken isn't cooked through, which I seem to have a special talent for doing. I will probably decrease the time a bit next time I make this recipe."
"I thought this chicken recipe was ok. Nothing special so I don't think I'll be making again."
"This was very good. I will use this again for chicken on the grill."
"Sounds wonderful, but I don't grill! That was my late husbands job. Any way I could do this in the oven?"
