    What I loved about this recipe is the quick marinade time for days when I fail to plan ahead. Flavor was good but not unique.

    This was a fantastic marinade. All of the family loved the flavor. My son-in-laws raved the next day about it! It was very easy to prepare. The chicken was VERY moist.  I actually used "hot" dijon mustard An excellent blend of flavors!
