Honey-of-a-Meal Chicken

My husband is a big fan of honey mustard, so I like to make extras of this chicken and slice it up for sandwiches the next day. I've also shredded the chicken to serve on sub rolls. —Traci Wynne, Denver, Pennsylvania

    This was a good recipe to try in my new Instant Pot. Hubby didn't like the sauce at all, and I had to add some things to make it better.

    I only gave it four stars because I monkeyed with the recipe, but it was quite tasty. I don't have a pressure cooker either, and made only two boneless, skinless breast halves, browning on both sides in a 10" fry pan on the stove top. Since someone said it was tasteless, thought I would add 2 teaspoons curry powder to the sauce. After pouring it over the chicken, brought it to a boil and then turned it down to a simmer for 30 minutes. Served it with brown rice and a salad. It was quite tasty. I used only 1/2 cup homemade chicken broth, so I will add 1/2" teaspoon salt next time. Thickened the sauce with 1 tablespoon cornstarch, since there was still a lot of liquid and didn't want to take the time to reduce it.

    This was convenient and tasted pretty good, but just didn't have that wow factor I was hoping for.

    I don't have a pressure cooker, but started this on the stovetop in an oven-safe skillet, then covered and baked at about 425. Once chicken was done, I reduced the sauce on the stovetop, and it turned out great- husband loved it!

    I didn't use a pressure cooker; baked it instead at 350 for about 40 minutes. Used boneless, skinless chicken breasts; cut in half so they are thinner. I should have used less liquid, but I didn't and it turned out rather soggy. Interesting taste, but we've had better.

    This was so easy and delicious! Both my husband and I loved it - and better yet, I had all the ingredients on hand.
