"This was good. I butterflied the chicken breast and double the sauce, per reviews. I will cut back on the mustard since I did not get much herb flavor. I served it over couscous."

"Was delicious! My whole family enjoyed it and have asked for it again. I did make one change to the recipe by submitting spicy brown mustard for the Dijon. It was delicious."

"Fast easy and a nice change, I made myself a note to be light on the salt because of the broth. Next time I will try white wine in place of broth. Great recipe"

"I followed the recipe as written but made it for two and kept the sauce for four. I made a bed of fettuccine and placed the chicken on top pouring the reduced sauce over both. This is a keeper.

The recipe is great as is but next time I will add a clove of garlic (chopped) to the pan after browning the chicken. Maybe deglaze the pan with a dry white wine and reduce until almost evaporated. Then continue with the herbs and liquid as written."
