Reviews for Contest-Winning Honey-Dijon Chicken
"HOW DO YOU CUT THIS RECIPE FOR TWO? THANK YOU!"
"I was looked forward to trying this dish. The chicken came out nice and juicy, but it was too bland. My husband didn't care for it all."
"Very simple and tasty. Will be a repeat at our house."
"Loved it. For the two of us I cut the sauce to 1/4 and used 2 chicken breasts. The amount of sauce was perfect. I think if I had cut the sauce down any more it would have been to dry."
"Excellent!! My family loved it. Will definitely fix again. I have also prepared in the slo-cooker. I added all ingredients except cornstarch and cooked 4 hours on low. Added cornstarch and cooked 20 minutes longer. Served over rice."
"I thought this was ok, but a bit bland. Just didn't do it for me I'm afraid."
"I made this with just four chicken breast because it is just me and my husband at home. It was delicious and took about 25 minutes start to finish. Instead of cornstarch I used flour, and I used honey mustard in stead of dijon and honey. My husband and I both agree the honey mustard was a bit over powering on the noodles we used as a side but in a pinch it totally worked. Can't wait to eat the left overs which are in the freezer now!"
