      OH, my goodness!!! This was absolutely DIVINE!!! I stuffed my chicken with sliced onion, garlic, and celery just to add extra flavor. Basted as directed, and served with rice, stir-fried vegs and remaining marinade. WONDERFUL!!! Only thing I changed was to add a little extra garlic and I also skipped the mustard, as I didn't have any on hand. DEFINITELY A KEEPER!! Thanks, mandabears!!! ~Manda

      Excellent recipe. We ate this with sauted mushrooms and cabbage for people who dislike cabbage (recipe number 18816). Thanks for sharing!

      This chicken was fantastic. I didnt change a thing except I marinated the chicken for about 8 hrs due to time comstraints. Moist, tender, and delicious. I served the chicken with a side of sesame noodles. Had enough left over for my lunch the next day and the chicken was still perfect. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe.
