Reviews for Simple Maple Mustard Chicken
"Great flavor good color-grilled great-really enjoyed it. Truly a keeper."
"Love marinated grilled chicken breast and this was one of the best marinades we've tried! Looking forward to making this regularly!"
"I really liked the flavor of the sauce, but the tapioca made it the consistency of snot - not appetizing. I won't be making this again, but if I did I would eliminate the tapioca and thicken the sauce with flour or cornstarch instead."
