Add remaining marinade and let simmer until chicken is glazed and tender and juices run clear. Remove chicken to platter/serving dish.

I served it over spanish rice & my husband and I loved it!

This dish was great. My boyfriend doubled the sauce recipe (we used hot picante for an extra kick) but kept the dijon mustard at 1/4 cup. It just looked like way too much mustard for the recipe ...

I made this recipe with jalapeño mustard because we were out of dijon, and it came out terrific. It was quick enough and easy to make, a good thing having a newborn. (and not a lot of time) Will...
