I didn't have any lemon zest so I just squirted in some lemon juice. The chicken was so moist and the sauce was sweet and flavorful.

We used Teddy's rootbeer, I didn't have a fresh lemon for zest so used 1 Tbs of Italia lemon concentrate plus one whole snack pack of Oceanspray Orange Crasins. I pan seared chicken tenders strips, then transferred to plate and put sauce in pan brought to boil then lowered heat to thicken and partially reduce the sauce. Then I transferred chicken to fireproof glass dish and poured all sauce over it and put in a 325 degree toaster oven for 30 min. I served over white rice steamed with sea salt, pepper, butter, and a side of garlic green beans. My husband and I both really liked this dish. It reminded us of a type of chutney. We will make again!

Delicious. Served with rice. Could not tell that there was root beer. Will try Luigimon idea next time and will bake for a good glaze.

Yummy, my husband and I really enjoyed it. That makes two stars. It was easy to prepare and I will continue to make it. That gives it two more stars. If it is that good already it deserves to be a five star.

Yummy!!! We slow baked them in the oven at about 325 so we could glaze them and get a good glaze going. Very good and will make it again!

I did not have dijon mustard, so I had to use spicy brown instead. It still worked out well and we will be having this again.

This is delicious. I've made it several times and will make it several more times. I've also shared the recipe with friends and have gotten many thanks. My grandkids also love this.

My family enjoyed this recipe. The root beer ingredient interested me and the sauce turned out sweet and mild and my youngest even liked it.

I found this tolerable, but no one else liked it at all. I tried to use the leftovers in salads the next night and that was not a hit either.
