This was great! I would never have thought these ingredients would taste this way. I am a novice at mexican-inspired cooking, but this chicken tasted exactly like a friend's homemade chicken enchiladas-yum! i too decreased the mustard to about 1/8 cup in the marinade-- and added more (about double) of all ingredients to sauce while boiling it, and we STILL didn't have enough sauce for our 3 chicken breasts. next time i will make even more sauce, it was really the star of the whole meal. I used a medium salsa and it had just the right amount of heat. Topped with sour cream, which was just perfect to counter the heat-- no lime garnish, they had all been squeezed into the sauce by that point. served with yellow rice and a black bean and corn salad. great, easy recipe! thanks!-07 May 2003
The whole family loved this! My kids even asked for seconds...Only change I made was using olive oil for 1/2 the butter and topping with sour cream instead of yogurt. This one's a keeper!-13 Mar 2005
Quick and easy, but if I ever make this again, I will double the recipe for the marinade. There was not enough left to serve over the cooked chicken. What was left was really tasty.-27 Feb 2002
