I loved this. As others said, cut way down on the butter, use equal amounts of mustard and honey so it's not so sweet. Cover breasts in sauce then dredge in bread crumbs. Yum - comes out moist with some crisp on the outside--eliminates the basting too. So easy!

Not what I imagined...

I made a few revisions but this was fantastic and GREAT as leftovers. The butter should definitely be cut in at least half, and I added a generous portion of curry powder which made it absolutely spectacular. I also used O'Charley's brand honey mustard instead of mixing my own honey and mustard. I baked chicken legs and boneless pork chops in a 9x13 with this poured over it and served with rice and steamed carrots. It was absolutely delicious.

Great Easy Meal! I love that the ingredients are all things that I keep stocked in the pantry. I only needed 2 chicken breasts so I cut the sauce in half and there was still a lot. I'm not good about basting once the meat goes into the oven. With a 3 year old, I want to "set it and forget it", so my sauce didn't glaze very well. I still gave 5 stars because that was my own problem. Next time, I will only pour half the sauce over the meat, and put the rest in a sauce pan, to thicken. Then pour the sauce over the meat at the end. I served this with fresh green beans and squash-apple bake. A great Fall meal. Fast, easy and delicious! You can't ask for more. Next time, I'll try this with pork chops. Should be great!

We really liked this chicken dinner! I wanted to make six chicken breasts, so following the recommendations of others, I adjusted the recipe as follows: 1/4 cup butter; 1 cup honey; 1/2 cup mustard and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. It did make a lot of the sauce, but that was fine. (It worked out well for the six chicken breasts, and we like a lot of sauce!) Served it with rice and green beans. The sauce also tasted good on the rice. I baked it at 375 for 45 minutes; worked out well for the six chicken breasts. I only basted once, and probably didn't even need to do that. I will definitedly make this again.

The only reason I gave this a 4 instead of a 5 is because it way too much butter. If you at least cut the butter in half and add some cayenne to kick it up a little, it is wonderful. I was in a hurry so I made it on the stovetop and it turned out just fine. My husband and I really liked this and will add to the regular rotation. Thanks for this super easy and delicious recipe!

This was really good. I used less than 1/4 cup of butter, added garlic powder, & cayenne powder to the mustard mix. I slathered two good sized chicken breast pieces in the sauce and then coated them in breadcrumbs. I baked for close to an hour and it turned out moist and delicious with a good balance of flavors. This was quick & easy. I will definitely make again.

This was delicious. I used lemon pepper, Emeril's Essense and garlic salt. We dripped the broth over rice. I will definitely make this again.
