What a terrific recipe! Made this last night for my husband and he loved it. Said it would be perfect to serve when people come over. I pounded my chicken breasts first because they were kind of thick and had to increase the initial cooking time to 20-25 minutes because at 10 minutes, it was still very raw. My picky daughter liked the chicken but without the nuts. She just doesn't like nutes period. Served over brown rice and with a granny smith apple/spinach/candied pecan salad. Again, very, very good. I love this site and everything I have prepared has received countless compliments.
Oh my. I'm sure my low rating is a reflection of our personal tastes and not the recipe itself. Although we like all the ingrediants seperately, we just didn't care for the combined taste. I just wish it tasted as good as it looked coming out of the oven. Thanks anyways Brian.
The sauce for this recipe definately deserves 5 stars. The reason why I am going with 4 is that the cook time for the chicken seems a little short unless you pound the chicken breasts thin. I added more time to my cook time. In addition, next time I think I will try the cornstarch to thicken the sauce, I just don't want to change the taste of the sauce, it is excellent with chicken and rice. I also enjoy the flavor of the pecans! Thanks for a good recipe Brian!
With a few adjustments this is very good. The first time I found the 6 T. of Dijohn to be too overpowering, so I cut back to only 4 T. Also I added a little more honey. Don't use the ground mustard. It would be way too mustardy!
Really good! This tastes similiar to honey mustard chicken - I didn't think it tasted odd at all. Every ingredient blends together and the chicken comes out juicy! The only thing I would change would be to add a few tablespoons of cornstarch because the sauce is a bit too thin.
YUMMY! Made exactly as written and loved it! When my grandma was still alive this was one of her favorites so I made this a lot. I've never even altered it in any way like I eventually do with most recipes! So moist and flavorful it doesn't need any changes!
This was VERY easy and good. Even my picky son loved it! The sauce is excellent over rice.
Sorry, we did not like this -- it was just way too sweet for our taste. I'm giving it two stars because the first few bites were good, but after that we all had to force ourselves (some of us scraping off the sauce) to eat it.
