Great taste. I used boneless chicken breasts and after reading the reviews, I marinated the chicken in the lemon & mustard sauce for an hour. Next time I might try cooking the chicken with the sauce and spices and leave off the bread crumbs to see if it has even more of the tangy flavor.



This was sooo tasty. I agree with another reviewer who said it would be even better to marinate the chicken for awhile longer.. next time I will try that. Nice and easy, quick and light.. I was able to reduce the amount of butter in this by 1/3 w/o any negative effects on the meal. I will keep this in my recipe box



I made this suculant chicken dish last night. Wolfgang gave it a 5 stars and ate 3 peices. I thought it was the most flavorful chicken I have ever had. I made it with skinless chicken breasts and it turned out mouth watering! Afterward during our post dinner activities, Wolfgang screamed out "lemmon zest!" .... so all in all, I'd say the chicken was a hit"
