Very good chicken. I thought the honey mustard was a bit overpowering. I may try honey mustard dressing next time. If not, I will cut back on the amount.

This was quick, tasty, & moist. I might add a slice of cheese next time. Provolone or Swiss?

This was a great recipe. I made this for my husband and I and only had chicken tenderloins on hand. so instead of stuffing the chicken I just cooked the chicken in cubes in a skillet then added the honey mustard, ham, and crushed pretzels and served it over a plate of spinach. It was fast and incredibly delicious.

I also added some swiss cheese, very good! It was the first thing my son wanted me to make after he healed from wisdom teeth removal! Be careful not to over cook as I did one time, it needs to be tender and juicy or it doesn't taste right.

I did as another reviewer mention: I coated the chicken with the honey mustard (I used raspberry honey mustard) to make the pretzels stick and I added a slice of swiss cheese between the ham slices. Yum!
