I changed this a bit , I used 1 TBS lemon juice insted of lemon and lime (also, winter in England so lemons aren't exactly in season). I also added two spring onions and 2 cloves garlic chopped up and 1/2tsp honey when cooking the chicken. Then I served it on top of a romaine salad that had been tossed with a bit of olive oil, lemon,salt ,pepper, and Parmesan. Yummy! Very good for the diet effort as well!

My boyfriend loved this - he was still talking about it 3 days later! I kept the chicken breasts whole and coated in the dijon mixture, browned in the skillet, and then mixed in more dijon mixture along with about a 1/2 cup of chicken broth and a heaping spoonful of sour cream. I did find the dijon mix to be a little tart and on the salty side (due to the mustard, I presume), and the broth and sour cream helped with that. I finished cooking the chicken in this sauce and covered with foil so it wouldn't dry out. I also mixed in some dried parsley at the end to help balance the flavors. Served with white rice and green beans. My boyfriend has already asked for it again - thanks the great, quick idea!

Quick and easy, both for cooking and clean-up. I've made this several times already. On all occasions I added a small bit of soy sauce and worcestershire sauce to balance the citrus and dijon just a tad, and also added a dash of garlic salt to the recipe. Very tasty, and cooked on very low heat it comes out very juicy! Served it with white rice and steamed veggies.
