Can this be reheated in microwave? Will it dry it out?

What other type of mustard could I use? We don't like stone ground mustard. What type of maple syrup should I use?

I have a question. Is this 1 cup of real maple syrup or the stuff people usually use on pancakes?It would make a huge difference in the favor I think.

Simple to prepare and cook. Husband loved it. I put it over yellow rice and it was delicious! I might add more Stone Ground Mustard for a more spicy taste. Otherwise this is a keeper!

I made this, although it didn't sound too appetizing, I thought I might be surprised and like it. Well, I should have gone with my first instinct... We couldn't eat it.

The combination of maple and chicken did not taste good. My family was very disappointed.

I cut recipe in half. I used Bone Suckin' mustard and Quorn meatless chicken cutlets I served over tortellini. We enjoyed tapioca pudding for dessert. Thanks, Jennifer, for sharing this recipe.

Easy and tasty. I may try it in the oven next time, since other reviewers seemed to prefer it.
