I followed the recipe without changes. I love the flavor of the sauce and how it clings to the chicken and gets sticky. A definite keeper! Simple and delicious!

This was pretty good. I used yellow mustard. This is definitely one of those recipes that you look at and say, I don’t understand how a mixture of those ingredients are any good. It wasn’t bad. It was similar to a honey mustard and the allspice kicked it up a bit. I think the sauce would be better served as a pretzel dip. There was something about the chicken marinaded in the sauce that was a little off putting.

I have made this twice--once with Dijon mustard and once with yellow mustard. I liked the yellow better, but that is just a personal preference. This recipe has all the right points, it's delicious, fast, easy, and calls for kitchen staples I have right on hand. It received thumbs up at the dinner table. I'm going to try it tonight as a glaze for grilled pork chops.

Made just as the recipe is written, using Dijon mustard. Delicious. And easy. Perfect spring/summer main dish. Will make again. And again.

I followed this recipe to a T and it was terrible. The only thing we could conclude it tasted like was potpourri. After reading other reviews I'm not sure if I did something wrong somewhere or what the case was, but this was not good - all household members agreed, which doesn't happen often in our home -ESPECIALLY with Taste of Home recipes - this is one of the FEW that hasn't worked out and been delicious :(

Made this yesterday for Memorial Day weekend picnic. Everyone loved it. I followed the recipe to the letter and so glad I did. I will be making this for any picnic we go to over the summer and for us here at home. So easy and delish!!!! Thank you for the great recipe.

I tried this last night, but being alone now, had to make adjust it for myself. I had a nice turkey thigh in the freezer and used it. The only changes I made were to add some crushed garlic, and a bit of hot sauce to add to the heat of the chilies. I left the skin on the thighs, and of course had to cook it longer, and was done on the BBQ, but it turned out perfect. Was wonderful with a basic salad I quickly drummed up. Great easy recipe. Thanks a bunch.

Great tasting quick sauce for chicken. Used yellow mustard, and I didn't think the mustard taste was overwhelming at all.
