  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until done and chicken juices run clear. You can also grill or broil for 30 minutes, turning chicken pieces after 15 minutes of cooking.

Should be called sticky darn good chicken. Yummy! The only reason I rated it 4 on 'quickness' is because of the amount of time needed to marinate it - which is not long for a marinate. If you chose to grill in a frying pan, make sure the element is kept on medium - not high.

I didn't think it was "Darn Good" because it was too bland. Just not my thing.

Excellent!! My family loved it, even my picky daughter who doesn't really like meat (she's too distraught about where it comes from to want to eat it)! This will definitely be made again. We LOVED this!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! It's quick, so easy and I had everything on hand. And, cleanup was a snap (big plus in my book. I hate cleaning the kitchen)!! 5 stars in my book!!!

We liked it although next time I would cut back just a touch on the mustard because that taste does come through quite a bit. I loved the nutmeg in this, very different. The sauce is excellent for dipping the chicken in and it cooked up nice in the marinade....didn't waste a thing.

This was sooooo good, I took the recipe with me on vacation so more people could enjoy it. An easy recipe that is the best. My whole family loved it.

It was good, but way too sweet for our taste. Probably should have used dijon rather than yellow prepared mustard.

Really good, the nutmeg adds a nice touch and really cuts down the mustard flavour. I'm making a new meal every monday night for my grandmother and this was the first day. Both Grandma and I would make it again. We baked it in the marinade and I think it would make a nice sauce with rice. Thanks!
