Love this dish! Very easy to make and has a lot of flavor. I subbed in pineapple chunks and it was very good! I also topped with some diced green onions.

My husband and I really enjoyed this delicious chicken! The recipe was easy to prepare and something I'll definitely make again. I did use pineapple chunks instead of sliced, but it still made a nice presentation.

I didn't have Dijon mustard and substituted a smaller amount of honey mustard, and it still turned out good! A nice change of pace from the savory chicken I usually make.

This recipe is AMAZING! The honey and pineapple compliment each other well; I am always being asked for the recipe.
