This was delicious and took almost no effort. I used frozen chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken.



Wonderful and easy! Loved this chicken! I actually slow cooked it all day, so it was falling off the bone tender and flavourful. During the last hour I added sliced apples and a sprinkle of brown sugar. Delicious! Me and guests loved it. I would try this recipie with pork as well. Thank you!



Can I rate this if I used pork? It was great! I seared the pork chops before baking and only had 1.5 lbs., so there was extra sauce to serve with rice. The only thing I'd eliminate would be the salt. I don't think it's needed with the mustard. Otherwise, this is definitely a "keeper". Maybe sometime I'll try it with chicken.
