"My husband and I really enjoyed this delicious chicken! The recipe was easy to prepare and something I'll definitely make again. I did use pineapple chunks instead of sliced, but it still made a nice presentation."

"I didn't have Dijon mustard and substituted a smaller amount of honey mustard, and it still turned out good! A nice change of pace from the savory chicken I usually make."
