"WOW!! I am not a big pan of peanuts or pecans, but this was perfect! I did not make the sauce and it was just fine without it."

"Really great tasting chicken! There wasn't enough sauce, would recommend doubling it - what a surprisingly great tasting sauce! Who would think mustard & maple syrup? I had some chicken left over, it was great cold, cut up on salad"

"When I made the dipping sauce I didn't think I liked it, but it really complimented the flavor or the chicken. I used a little more Dijon mustard in the sauce and I pounded the chicken. I also drizzled the sauce over rice."
