Reviews for Maple Mustard Chicken
"I made this, although it didn't sound too appetizing, I thought I might be surprised and like it. Well, I should have gone with my first instinct... We couldn't eat it."
"Lacked flavor I thought"
"The combination of maple and chicken did not taste good. My family was very disappointed."
"I cut recipe in half. I used Bone Suckin' mustard and Quorn meatless chicken cutlets I served over tortellini. We enjoyed tapioca pudding for dessert. Thanks, Jennifer, for sharing this recipe."
"Easy and tasty. I may try it in the oven next time, since other reviewers seemed to prefer it."
"Made this last night, and although it was easy to fix just wasn't what I had hoped it to be. I didn't care for the flavors at all."
"Easy but not as flavorful as I thought it would be. If I make it again, I would do it on the stovetop and add some cider vinegar as it says to on Cooking Light"
"We did it in the oven and it was delicious! Didn't have time to do slow cooker as it was a last minute dinner, it was really quick and easy."
"Good and easy! I did change the recipe a bit - added salt and a bit of brown sugar, no tapioca, poured it over the chicken and baked it covered at 350 for 1-1/4 hours. Yum!"
"Didn't look as pretty as the picture but it was good. It was a good change when on a diet and eating lots of chicken!"
"I make a LOT of chicken dishes and my family gets tired of it. This was a refreshing new flavor that everyone enjoyed -- and it was so EASY, which I appreciated."
"This was terrible. We couldn't even eat it. I will never make this again."
"This was super easy and very flavorful. Adding with rice and a nice salad made a great dinner."
"I made this but added about half a cup of bbq sauce and it was really good and oh so easy."
"Chicken was very bland (and I added salt, pepper, & onion powder). Sauce was decent, though. Too bad it wasn't a good recipe - it sure was easy."
"This goes together in a flash. A bit on the blandish sweet side. I used skinless breasts with the bone and cooked them longer."
"This is a wonderful recipe. We have made this several times and it is perfection everytime. Thank you!"
"Very simple and extremely yummy!"
"Tried this recipe and it was agreed on by all as a "make again" recipe. Put this one in my favorite's folder so I can find it easily. So simple! I used 4 boneless chicken breasts so I reduced the amounts of the other ingredients accordingly. I also lightly browned the chicken in a skillet before placing in my slow-cooker. Served it with quinoa, and it paired well with the delicious juices from the slow-cooker. Looking forward to making this again!"
"This is one of the best recipes. Sooooo easy! I also used cornstarch to thicken as I didn't have tapioca. Sauce is very flavourful. This recipe is definitely a keeper."
"very bland , just kind of an odd taste. no one in my family cared for it"
"Didn't like the flavor"
"my husband and I didn't care for this recipe"
"Great recipe! I only cook for myself and an elderly person so I thought 6 chicken breasts was way to much for me to bother with. However I tried it anyway. We had it for supper and individually froze the other 5 pieces with the sauce. It freezes great and it make a handy meat dish for unexpected company. Just thaw it out and reheat in microwave. This dish will be a freezer staple for me. And its being diabetic friendly was a super bonus!"
"I use a very similar recipe for pork roast. The only thing different is I add crushed rosemary."
"Stone ground mustard is mustard - just grainer and more robust. You can find it wherever mustard is sold. We tried this recipe this weekend and really liked it. I think the leftovers will be even better. I followed the recipe exactly except used corn starch as others suggested because I had it on hand."
"I am anxious to make this but What is stone ground mustard?"
"Wow! What a surprise! Not too sweet, just right. I love it! & I'm sure my family will. Serving it tonight."
"Made this for my first dinner party ever. So nice to get the main dish in the pot so that I can run around dealing with everything else. Everyone loved it. They were really surprised how moist the slow-cooker chicken was.I also used cornstarch instead of tapioca."
"This is OMG Delicious!...a new family favorite! Instead of the tapioca (which I didn't have on hand) I thickened the sauce by stirring into liquid in slow cooker (after removing cooked chicken) 1 1/2 T. cornstarch dissolved in 1 1/2 T. cold water."
"This is the simplest recipe ever. Used sugar free maple syrup rather than regular. Served it with mashed potatoes rather than rice. Still excellent. Will be a frequent part of our diet now. mf"
"This is one of the best recipes ever. The chicken is so moist and tender. Anytime I make it, someone asks for the recipe."
"This recipe is very easy to make and the taste is very good. I served it with fried rice with julienned carrots and broccoli flowerettes."
"This recipe is the ultimate in simplicity and taste. I have made it every week since finding the recipe on line. Thank you for sharing it with all of us. nd"
