Simple Maple Mustard Chicken Recipe

Publisher Photo
For make-ahead convenience, Lynda Ebel of Medicine Hat, Alberta marinates these chicken breasts overnight. "Their sweet and mustardy flavor goes well with baked potatoes and a tossed salad. They'd make delightful chicken sandwiches, too," she says.

Love marinated grilled chicken breast and this was one of the best marinades we've tried! Looking forward to making this regularly!

MY REVIEW

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.

MY REVIEW

This recipe is incredibly moist and tasty! I made it with frozen chicken tenders instead of regular chicken breasts, which allowed the marinade to soak in more and they cooked more quickly.
