"It was good. I skipped the pine nuts."

"We have small appetites so I was able to get 3 servings out of one 8 ounce chicken breast and made a few small changes. I used non stick cooking spray..olive oil cook the chicken and I didn't have any pine nuts in the house so omitted those. Otherwise I followed the recipe and served on noodles...flavor was very good and will definitely make again."

"Excellent!!! We pretty much followed the recipe, except mixed the flour, broth, and mustard before adding, and we also added capers. Served it over angel hair pasta. Will probably toast the pine nuts next time (and there will definitely be a next time!)."
